Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-05  mjk: It looks like Euwe passed on a tacit draw offer at move 35 only to lose later.
Jan-07-05  Flo: I like to play the Grunfeld with the white pieces!

Euwe moves the Queen seven times in the opening without moving another piece between the queen-moves!

This game is a good example how to play NOT the first 15 moves as black!

Jan-07-05  Whitehat1963: Player of the day uses a Russian Grunfeld (Opening of the day) to beat a former world champion.
Apr-08-05  Open Defence: Hmmm well some openings do lead to a lot of Queen moves initially, but I think the position was even until move 27..♖xb5 throws the position out of balance

Thats my humble 2c anyway :-D

Sep-13-09  PeterB: We have to give credit where credit is due - 20....Nd4! and Black takes over!
Jul-07-14  sfm: Neat ending zugzwang (although Black wins in any case).
