Nov-09-06  who: Magnificent. I especially liked the rook maneuvers from move 36-39

  kevin86: Max Euwe was able to gain a pawn and thus a game start at this rematch. Soon,AA,(boy those are ironic initials!)soon was able to take over and win this match rather handily.
Aug-15-07  RookFile: It ended up that way, but it was really close until almost the very end. Then, all of a sudden, Alekhine won 4 games and broke Euwe's spirit.
Mar-16-08  Knight13: Euwe gave a lot more extensive annotation than Capablanca in his match against Lasker.
Jun-27-10  hankm: Great game. These are some of the best annotations I have seen in a while...

  DarthStapler: Capablanca was never known as a very good annotator
Jul-13-12  master of defence: <Avoiding the pitfall 22 Rxa7 Bxf1 23 Rxc7 Rd1 after which White would get into trouble.> What happens after 24.h4 in this line?
Jul-13-12  Babes: 24...Bxe2+ and ...Bf3 is what happens.
Jul-14-12  master of defence: <Babes> Do you think that is impossible to stop the mate in h1? White yet has g4.
Jul-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> you want mean gxh4, no?
Jul-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> Black simply meets g3-g4 with ...gxh4 taking away the g3-square. (Edited)
May-19-16  CblP: Euwe says it's lost for black after 18. Ng5. But what happens then? are there any threats?
May-19-16  AlicesKnight: After 17....fxe5; 18.Ng5 exf4; 19.Nxe6 wins the exchange at a minimum, while if 18.... Bf7 (.... Bd5?; 19.Bxd5 and the pawn is pinned to the unguarded Q)White can exchange N for B and withdraw his QB, and then Black's Q-side pawns fall inexorably - there is also the latent danger of exposing the Black K to Qc4+ winning the Black B - and that is probably for starters....
