Alexander Alekhine - My Love for the Legend
Hello Chess Fans! Today, I am going to write about my favourite chess player and show you some of his games. Alexander Alekhine (and Jose Raul Capablanca) was one of the first players to develop a systematic way of playing both Positional and Attacking Chess. He played almost every opening flawlessly and if you would have replaced Kasparov with Alekhine at St.Louis, he'd have certainly won the tournament. Anyway, my love for the legend began when I was analyzing a game from the 1927 World Championship match against Capablanca. Lets have a look at the game -
The next game is also one of my favourites because I share a co-incidence with Alekhine. I played a game in the same variation and after the game, I told my opponent - 'Eating Carrots will Improve Your Chess' and that was exactly what Alekhine said to Nimzowitsch!
