Aug-10-06  TheBB: "The technician, whose vocabulary has been doubled by Dr. Euwe, will find that White could have saved his soul by a desperado combination. Had this failure anything to do with the fact that Dr. Euwe's terminology was not yet existent at that time!?"

- Reinfeld

This "desperado combination" must be 37. Bxe5 fxe5 38. Ke4 which should draw.

Also, 22. Nc6?. 22. Bxc5 bxc5 23. Qxa2 cxd4 24. Nxd4 must be better.

According to the tournament book the combination would have been <22.Qxa2 axb3 23.Rxc5!! bxc5 24.Qxb3> and there is nothing left for a Black win.

Euwe said similar in his annotations:

"Wit heeft echter sterker: 22 Qxa2! ab3 23 Rxc5 en zwart kan in geen geval meer winnen. Beide spelers zagen deze mogelijkheid over het hoofd."
