Apr-23-15  RookFile: It looks like Euwe had an advantage. I was sure he was going to win. Somehow Keres broke out of the pins.

  whiteshark: "Sterker was <21... Pe4> met verschillende dreigingen. Na <22.Dd3, Df6 23.Tb1, Dc3> houden de partijen elkaar ongeveer in evenwicht. Na de tekstzet echte krijgt wit goede kansen, omdat zijn lopers in actie komen."
