|Sep-26-06|| ||keypusher: <Upon the insistance of the Soviet authorities to gain a win over Euwe at any cost, Botvinnik was hesitant. When pressured further, he agreed. Soon after Euwe had his opening analyses book stolen. As has been noted, "The Russians played their game in excellent style".>|
People wouldn't tolerate this sort of thing in a third-rate spy novel, but they take it seriously in chess.

Raymond Keene's annotations are updated to comment on the present match World championship tournament in Mexico, a latter day echo of the 1948 match in which this match was played.
|Sep-24-07|| ||kevin86: This tournament was a milestone. It was dominated by and created the first World Champion of the Soviet School. The long reign of central and western Eorope is ended for good. |
This game was old school vs new school and the latter won handily.
|Sep-24-07|| ||xrt999: black is sunk at move 12. Instead of dealing with the f pawn he brings out the queen. Of course, white is going forward with fxg opening up the kingside, and black will never castle. Too rub it in white castles on move 14 and the game then revolves around this horrible move by black on move 12....which white exploits the rest of the game, black desperately trying to recover but never does. 1-0|
|Sep-24-07|| ||schnarre: A long "Black Sabbath" for Euwe....|
|Mar-20-08|| ||Knight13: That's because 17...Rd5 is useless.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||arsen387: how whites are winning after 32..c3 33.Qxc3 d2 34.Qxe5+ Kd8? Of course whites win if he now manages to exchange his Q for black R or at least deliver his Q to d1 with checks but I can't see how it is possible. any help please|
|Oct-23-08|| ||ughaibu: 34.Qc8, take the rook and Ke2.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||arsen387: <ughaibu> right, thanks. missed that|
|Oct-23-08|| ||ounos: That's how this variation is played, Kramnik :P|
|Oct-23-08|| ||kevin86: Out with the old:Euwe;in with the new:Botvinnik.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||medstu56: is this max euwe week or what?|
|Oct-23-08|| ||JG27Pyth: The really shocking thing here is how could chessgames.com blunder away the opportunity for any of several dozen different Euwe-puns while titling the GOTD?|
Euwe've got to be kidding, etc. etc. etc. don't get me started... my plane just fl-euwe in from the coast and boy are my arms tired...
|Oct-23-08|| ||sneaky pete: Blessed are the ignorants, for they hear puns where there are none.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||johnsbrother: I really enjoy perusing any games annotated by Keene. He does a great job simplifying the notes...good for a patzer like me.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||HannibalSchlecter: I wonder if Euwe knew the rule which permits castling.|
|Jul-17-09|| ||totololo: I like < Sneaky> 's comments. They are very insightfull to me .|
|Aug-10-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 22 Qg3!!|
|Aug-17-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:

Your score: 64 (par = 52)
|Jan-09-14|| ||Lonnie Lurko: Although the notes above are claimed to be by "International Grandmaster Raymond Keene", this is not so. They were plagiarised from Garry Kasparov's annotations in the second volume of My Great Predecessors.|
They were also published in The Spectator in September 2007, which fact is not recorded here.
|Feb-25-14|| ||Check It Out: I don't see any notes other than the intro and outro. Were they deleted?|
|Feb-25-14|| ||Shams: <Check It Out> It appears so. You could ask on the cg member forum, but I suspect they're hoping to roll these changes out quietly. |
I'd kill to read the emails that have gone back and forth between Daniel and Ray. :)
|Feb-26-14|| ||FSR: <Shams> How is it that no one besides Edward Winter and bloggers seems to care about Keene's blatant plagiarism? I love how he even plagiarizes the typos ("breath" instead of "breathe"). And I can't imagine why Keene has you on ignore. That must pain you terribly.|
|Feb-27-14|| ||Shams: <FSR> I replied on your forum.|
