Jul-23-02  bishop: If 32.Nxc8 then ...Qf5+ and Black would have had enough compensation for the exchange. White might have tried 22.c6 keeping the queenside locked up.
Jun-12-06  outplayer: 32.Nxc8 bxc3 33.Qc2 Bc8 threatening 34...Bf5 and wins.
Jul-06-07  mpl: It seems to me, that Euwe had a quicker win with the nice 28... ♗b7!, which wins a piece. Either the bishop on b6, e.g. 29. a3 ♕f5, or one of the knights, after 29. ♗xa5 ♘f4! 30. ♖xd7 ♘xe2 threatening mate on c1 as well as grabbing one of the knights on e4, f3.

Jan-24-11  laskereshevsky: In the 1923 the (great) Tarrasch didnt understand the KI...

Neither as White or Black..... :-D

Bogoljubov vs Tarrasch, 1923

After losing against the Euwe's King Indian, Siegbert tought:

<"ACH!... JA, JA!.. Thiz opening ist fery gud!...


I vill play tuu fery zoon!!....">

....Or (after been crashed by Bogo), he sneered to Euwe's face...

<"HA! HA!...Thiz Nederlander!... (But thiz time im in the right zide of the board!......)> ?!

Sep-08-12  twin phoenix: lol ja ja laskerreshev i love ur german!
Jun-23-14  Ulhumbrus: After 21...Rh8 Euwe shows White's d5 pawn to be a target instead of a weapon after 22...dc. Perhaps the lag in development of White's N on e1 suffices to make the difference
