The final part of the series! C. H. O’D. Alexander played Alekhine four times. Alekhine was better, of world champion status, but Alexander managed to draw twice! In my opinion the more instructive of these draws is as follows:

Alexander Alekhine–Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander Hastings 1933/34



However, Alekhine still got his revenge with a brilliant game. This is annotated by Alekhine. His demolition of Alexander’s kingside is impressive, although the game is rarely shown.

Alexander Alekhine–Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander Nottingham 1936



In keeping with the theme of Alexander–Alexander matches and great games, the last will be Alexander Kazimirovich Tolush–C. H. O’D. Alexander. This game, which Alexander won on his way to sharing first with Bronstein at Hastings 1953, is interesting, as Tolush is punished for his offbeat response to the Dutch.
