Dec-03-04  CHEG: Isn't 28...Rxf6 29 Qxf6+ Qg7 Still a somewhat even game?
Dec-03-04  learnChess1980: <CHEG> if black play Qg7 , then white 30.Qxd8+ then white rook still can capture bishop at move 31.
Dec-03-04  who: What a terrible opening. White loses the tempo within the first few moves. 10...Ne4?? Black throws his entire developmental advantage to the dogs. <CHEG: Isn't 28...Rxf6 29 Qxf6+ Qg7 Still a somewhat even game?> then 30.Qxd8+
Dec-03-04  flamboyant: qxd8??
queen cant take on d8...
qh5 is much easier..
Dec-03-04  who: 30...Bg8 (otherwise white wins the bishop too) 31.Qh4+ Qh7 (Bh7 32.Bxf5) 32.Qxh7
Dec-03-04  CHEG: Isn't Black's d8 Knight protecting that bishop? What about 30 Qxg7+ Kxg7 31 Rxe6 Nxd6

  akiba82: If 38... Qe7 obviously 39.Qh6+ so 38... Rf6 39. Qf6+ Kg8 40.Re6 Ne6 41.Bf5 wins a piece.

  akiba82: Fine was one of the top half dozen players at the time. Surprising that he could be crushed by such an offbeat opening in such short order.

  akiba82: The top six in 1937 were presumably, (in alphabetical order), Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Fine and Keres. Some would say Flohr deserves a spot, but I dont believe it.
Dec-04-04  iron maiden: Not to forget Reshevsky.
Dec-04-04  GKing: Id like to remenber that the six names akiba82 had mencionaded plus Flohr and plus Reshesvky (that iron maiden had mencionade too)had played the AVRO Tounament in 1938. Theese eight great chess players was choosen to fought each other in order to elect Alekhine challanger.Its my opinion theese eight names were the greatest chess players in 1937-1938.
