Alexander Alekhine, World Champion from 1927-1935; 1937-1946, was not only a highly dynamic and aggressive chess player, as is evidenced by this positional masterpiece from London 1922 against Frederick Yates. This game highlights a good knight versus a bad bishop, control of an open file, and a methodical endgame squeeze involving a king walk.
