This is a game played between Alekhine and Tarrasch. I just looked at for the first time. This is a game played between two great players in a famous tournament. I have to admit that it bored me, and I did not find it educational at all! The opening Alekhine plays is very played nowadays because it isn't considered very strong. Alekhine is one of my favorite players, but I don't like his writing very much as I do not find it very objective.

(7) Alekhine,A - Tarrasch,S [D15]Hastings Hastings (2), 1922[Ashton,Jeff]
