 **********************************************************************************

Alexander Alekhine was World Chess Champion from 1927 to 1935 & from 1937 to 1946. 

"Alekhine was one of the greatest attacking players and could apparently produce combinations at will. What set him apart from most other attacking players was his ability to see the potential for an attack and prepare for it in positions where others saw nothing."  
  
Rudolf Spielmann, a master tactician who produced many brilliancies, said, "I can see the combinations as well as Alekhine, but I cannot get to the same positions."
  
Dr. Max Euwe said, "Alekhine is a poet who creates a work of art out of something that would hardly inspire another man to send home a picture post-card." 
  
John Nunn commented that "Alekhine had a special ability to provoke complications without taking excessive risks"   
  
Edward Winter called him "the supreme genius of the complicated position"
