The famous chess game between Alexander Alexandrovich Alekhine and Eero Einar Böök was one of the most illustrious samples of Alekhine’s attacking style. Whether Alekhine’s sacrifices were completely sound or not was uncertain, but the situation on the board undeniably created significant difficulties for Black, resulting in a complex position that Alekhine enjoyed playing.
Alexander Alekhine was a Russian-French chess player who is widely considered one of the greatest chess players of all time. He became the fourth World Chess Champion in 1927, a title he held until 1935, and again from 1937 until his death in 1946. He was known for his aggressive and dynamic playing style, and he made significant contributions to chess theory and strategy.
British Chess Magazine reported later: “Dr. Alekhine won the tournament fairly comfortably, though he lost one game (to Petrov). Yet on the whole his play was of a very high standard, notably so against Böök where he played a game worthy to be classed amongst the best examples of Alekhine’s genius. In short, he is now playing as well as he ever did.”
