    Dear Alexandra

    It was a great pleasure to listen to Alekhine's interview! Thanks a lot for posting it.
    By the way, which is the correct pronunciation of Alekhine's name? I have been told that it may be "Al'iêkhin" or "Al'iókhin", with the group "kh" sounding as a strong aspiranted "h" in English and with a closed "e" or an open "o".

    Thank you verey much.

    You are right it's more like "Al'iókhin".
