May-25-06  AlexanderMorphy: FIRST! great game by the player of the day! a move like 42>Be4 by Euwe make me wonder if he was high during the game !
Nov-19-06  Eyal: This game is an excellent example of how an accurate and cool-headed defense can unbalance the opponent. Przepiorka's unnatural-looking 19...Bf8!, holding on to the important black-square bishop, is a key move. Euwe should have played 34.Bc5+, and after 34...Kd8 35.Qd3+ Ke8 36.Qg6+ obtain a draw by perpetual check (though black might still play for a win with 34...Rxc5 and great compensation for the exchange). Instead, after 34.f3, Euwe's position collapses very quickly; his 42nd move is almost comic, but of course he's completely lost by then. Przepiorka could have decided the game a bit more elegantly with 38...Rd2+ 39.Bxd2 Qxd2+ 40.Kf1 (40.Kg3 Qe1+ 41.Kf4 e5+ 42.Kf5 Qxb1+ 43.Kg4 Qxg6+) Qd1+ 41.Kf2 Qd4+ picking up the rook on a7.

  Whitehat1963: How does white meet the mate threat from 33...Qb4 that simultaneously attacks the rook on a5?

  Whitehat1963: Never mind. I see now.
Dec-22-10  Sem: Rash, impetuous play by Euwe, who when not behind the board was a very balanced person.
Dec-22-10  sevenseaman: A devastating game for Euwe. Is it possible he overlooked his R was 'en pris'??
Dec-26-10  Elsinore: <EUWE> CH!!!!
