Nov-16-04  kostich in time: This is the famous game that almost strangled the Scheveningen variation in its cradle. Euwe played a little too passively and allowed his teacher Maroczy to crush him. However, Lasker,Capablanca all played the variation within the next few years, and all played it very sucessfully. Euwe turned it into a very powerful weapon during the twenties(though he played it almost exclusively against players of the second or third rank) In fact, im puzzled why it isnt named the "Euwe variation"
Aug-01-07  engmaster: Actually up to move 6 we have the tabiya position for the white bishop to e2.

8) Kh1 is the standard move if white delays playing his bishop to e3

9) ...,Q7 the most natural place for the black Q highly recommended.

14) ..., Nb4 was the critical mistake, positionally black wants to advance the d pawn, Marcozy refutes this move better was Rf-d8

Dec-29-10  Ulhumbrus: On 27...Bxe7 28 Nxe7+ Qxe7 29 Bd6 forks the Q on e7 and the N on b4
