His name is Алехин in Russian. I don`t know how to transliterate the pronunciation but it would be:
A - as in but
le - as in small yet (said together)
ch - you are right about Bach (it is a bit softer) or as in loch. (not k - it is soft)
in - as in in
I think I'll just call him Al.
Aljåsjin . Å , the fourth letter, is the same sound as "a" in "all" The first a is like the "a" in the word "bar".
I am not sure if its Aljåsjin or Aljåxhin, hope some Russians can correct me, The Russian letter "x" is a strange sound.
There once was a World Champ named Alexander
A reported called him Al so they banned her
Some said Alekhine, like a draw he had to decline
Others went for A-le-khin - that, I'd be checkin', I reckon
I'm not really sure of the correct answer
