|Jun-17-06|| ||refutor: the last white for alekhine in the match. a great quote from kasparov's OMGP vol. 2 (p. 62)|
... Alekhine played 1.e4 and Euwe answered with a surprise 1. ...Nf6!? Alekhine later recalled that moment : "My opening... New York, Capablance, Bogoljubow, San Remo, Zurich - my entire career again passed before me. And here, at the end of the path, again my opening. In the 19th game I have to fight against my own opening and close the circle with my own hands."
|Mar-16-08|| ||Knight13: Euwe must've used this opening as a psychological weapon to use Alekhine's opening against him, and based on the stuff <refutor> posted, it seemed like it worked.|
|May-07-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Did Alekhine play this endgame correctly? It would appear that he should have been able to pose more problems for Euwe than he did.|
|Mar-05-11|| ||Calli: "Mad Max" at work. Needing only draws in the last two games for the championship, he psychs AA in the opening, but then instead of just returning the pawn with 10..Nc6, he goes for complications. Seems crazy! Just barely holds the draw in the end.|
|Mar-05-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Maybe he had a "Schlechter Moment" and thought he needed to win the match by two points to take the title.|
|Mar-05-11|| ||DWINS: <AnalyzeThis>, Purdy agrees with you. In "Extreme Chess" he gives 34. g4? and says, "White's Rooks are tied, but White had good winning chances if he had utilized his better advanced King. That, however, could only have been done by 34. Kg4!".|
