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%.

His biggest loss came from the exhibition held at Yogyakarta. Three players were able to defeat him. They were The Hong Oe, Anang Salman, and Achmad Abdul Satar. The Hong Oe was a famous chess composer. Anang Salman and Achmad Abdul Satar were Banjars (people from South Borneo) who lived at Yogyakarta.
