Bogoljubov vs Euwe - Two FIDE Championships
Compiled by Honza Cervenka
--*--

In 1928 and early 1929 Efim Bogoljubov and Max Euwe played two matches in Netherland. The first match was played in Amsterodam, Hague and Scheveningen and shortly before its beginning FIDE announced a bit surprisingly in a letter sent to both players that the winner of their match would become Champion of the FIDE. This decision of FIDE was mainly based on and backed by the fact that Max Euwe won Amateur world championship tournament in Hague 1928. The match got a nationwide attention in Netherland and Bogoljubov won it with score 5,5:4,5 (+3-2=5). The success of the first match was so great that one rich chess enthusiast decided to finance a match-revenge, that was held in several cities of Netherland in the end of 1928 and the beginning of 1929. Bogoljubov won this match with the same score as the first one 5,5:4,5 (+2-1=7).
