May-12-07  razarahman: A beautiful and Attacking Game by Euwe, and nothing can save black king from the double threats!!
May-12-07  paladin at large: Tartakower was 49 here when he lost to Euwe for the first time. When he was younger, he handled Euwe very well.

  plang: There seems to be no way for Black to avoid a clear disadvantage after 3..e5?! (3..e5 does appear to be playable if White plays 3 Nf3). 6..Nd4 7 f4 would have been strong for White. 13..a6 first before castling looks like an improvement. 15..Nxb5? was just begging for punishment; Euwe recommended 15..Kh8 16 Bd3..f5 17 Qc2 with a positional advantage for White.
Aug-14-23  YoungEd: Stockfish claims it's not that bad, but Black looks lost by move 13. He's totally cramped, and his only potential pawn break of ...f5 fails to Nxe5. It's not surprising that White piles on and wins.
