Jul-04-03  sarayu: 27. Qxf4 pretty much did him in. Seems like almost anything would have been better than that. Then 28. ... Rf1+ 29. Bxf1 Nf3+ and it's over.
Jul-04-03  mdorothy: Pretty straightforward. But pretty.
Jul-04-03  drukenknight: this guy is actually playing Euwe quite well. He should have tried to exchange sooner but the one thing he does is that as soon as he loses the exchange he gets in the check immediately.

22...Qh4 looks like a good way to get in the next check w/ the N.

So Euwe moves the K instead and so 23...Nh2 makes no sense. 23...Bh2+ does make sense.

Then the guy finally misses it all together 27....Qe1+ is logical.

Now what does Euwe do?

Well, Euwe was black so I guess he would have waited for his opponentĀ“s response after playing 27.- Qe1+. Or also he would have resigned before white played 28. Kxh2.

Feb-13-21  Notgudinov: This game is analyzed by Tarrasch in his book <The Game of Chess> as an example of how to "refute" 2.c4.

  keypusher: If White tries to defend with 28.Qd2, then 28....Rf1+ 29.Bxf1 Nf3+ 30.Kg2 Qh2#.
