Jan-24-06  Hidden Skillz: instead of 16.Ba4+.. euwe should have tried 16.Nxf6+ gxf6 17.Nxf7 Rg8 18.Bxd5 Rc8 etc.. but he chose the weak check instead.. black would still hold the advantage even after the safer 15...Nxd5

  Gypsy: <When I am White, I win because I am White. When I am Black, I win because I am Bogolyubov!>

<Bogolubov> ~= <Favorite-of-God>
