Dec-07-08  butcher123: Obviously,euwe made a mistake somewhere here.. HE had the edge mostly in the game.
Dec-07-08  jinga: had to laugh, because of the last move.
now seriously, butcher says the truth, if you ignore the last moves euwe had the edge.
Dec-07-08  whiteshark: <35...R2f7> seems to be not that hopeless as the move in the game.
Dec-07-08  Ychromosome: Does black still have an edge if white gets the queens of the board with 34.Qc4+

White has a knight versus the passed pawns.

Dec-07-08  whiteshark: <Ychromosome> After 34.Qc4+ QxQ+ 35.KxQ Rxd2 black is ♙♙♙ up

Nov-19-13  capablancakarpov: Doesn´t 29...Rd8+ wins?
Nov-20-13  JimNorCal: After 29. ... Rd8, white plays Nd4, right?
Black has an attack but white can make an annoying check on c4. Also Rb7+ if the king moves up. Black has to be careful.

  fredthebear: 24.Qc5! is a defensive game saver for White (that also becomes the Enola Gay). Black is hot on the heels of the White king, but is unable to sustain the initiative.

  ajk68: People are saying Euwe had the edge for most of the game. Not seeing it. Nor does the silicon monster.

He is chasing the white king around, but is down material and can't sustain an attack.

  Messiah: Terrible pun.
Nov-04-21  Brenin: <whiteshark>: After 34 Qc4+ Qxc4+ 35 Nxc4 White has N for 3P, and the position looks like a draw, e.g. 35 ... e2 36 Re7. I don't think Black was ever winning.

Or 35...R8f7.

Jun-03-22  tbontb: Euwe as Black builds up a positional advantage then optimistically sacrifices a B for 3 pawns and a K-side attack. However, White Morrison defends well and unexpectedly turns the tables. After 27....Rh2 (better f4) the K slips away. Instead of Rd3, the most accurate defence was probably 31.Nd2 Qd5 32.Qxd5+ cxd5 33.Rxb7.
