  GrahamClayton: Excellent sacrificial attack by Euwe to expose the Black king stuck in the centre of the board. The first rook sacrifice cannot be accepted due to 18... ♔xe7 19. ♗a3+ ♔e8 20. ♕e1+ ♘e4 21. ♖c7 ♖d7 22. ♖xd7 ♕xd7 23. ♘xe4.

20.♕f3? would allow Black to play on after 20...♕xa3 21. ♖cc7 ♕xe7 22. ♖xe7 ♔xe7.

Oct-07-19  syracrophy: The neat conclusion: 22...♘e4 23. ♘xe4 ♖d1 24. ♘d6+ (the pinned ♕ still has punch!) ♔d8 25.♖c(f)d7#. The conclusion that I would like more (though longer) goes 24.♘f6+ ♔d8 25.♕xd1+! ♗xd1 26.♖c(f)d7#
May-16-21  SymphonicKnight: A brilliant game that concludes spectacularly in such a combination that it hurts to think about it, to see the depth of it.
