  technical draw: Amazing, no comments on this game. White's bad 31.Ba3 and game over. Anyway there were future battles in store for these two including WC matches.

  keypusher: Why amazing?

  technical draw: I thought this was the only Alekhine/Euwe decisive game with no comments but I see there is one other. I'll remedy that is just a sec.
Feb-17-10  Calli: I can't believe there's no kibitzing for this game. You folks really disappoint me. Now I going to find another unkibitzed game by a famous player and leave another worthless comment.

Sorry Calli. I got that gig. I am going to make it my life's mission to make a comment (however inane) on every unkibitzed game. I'll practice here: Darn Capa's 37..Nc7 was definitely the wrong move!

May-30-12  ForeverYoung: some amazing complications after 22 ... Rxe2! and 26 Nf5? Wow!
Feb-16-13  jerseybob: Technical Draw: White's game was in bad shape even before 31.Ba3, with a piece hanging at e7 and the exchange hanging at f2. What do you suggest on 31?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <jerseybob> You're right. I thought 31.Be3 would save the exchange without noticing the hanging knight on e7. However after replaying I can see that Euwe still had some trickery left so that's probably why he didn't resign earlier.
