Alexander Alexandrovich Alekhine, the World Chess Champion of 1927-35 and 1937-46, visited Indonesia (then Netherlands Indies) for the second time in 1933.
The first was in 1930
Alekhine played many simultaneous and blindfold exhibitions at the cities in Java and Sumatera. The record was staggering: 437 wins, 23 draws, and only 9 losses. Those mean 95.6%.
