In this tournament, Alekhine realised one of the best performances by anyone ever: 5½ points clear of a field containing most of the world’s greatest masters of that time, with the exceptions of Lasker, Capablanca and Euwe. The games are widely available, e.g. in [2]. [1] gives the crosstable. Which game comes from which round was found in [3]. Note that the two last rounds of the second halve were played in the opposite order as the last two rounds of the first halve.
