Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-02-07  zb2cr: What's impressive about this game? How a position that looks decidedly drawish, or even favorable to White, at move 20, has been converted to a simple win for Black by White's mis-steps on moves 25, 29, and 31.
Apr-19-10  Sacrificial King: Yes, but egregiously sloppy defending in the endgame when the pawns should be dear to the Sultan and the draw is in sight.
Jul-12-14  jerseybob: zb2cr: White may be able to draw this game, but I wouldn't say it's "decidely drawish". Euwe's 15..Qd5! shows he thinks the ending is winnable; the two isolated d-pawns are not equal: white's is attacked twice, black's is not. That alone may not be fatal, but white's weakening of his k-side is what finally tips the balance, allowing the winning king invasion. Yes, white played some bad moves toward the end, but I don't think it really mattered by then.
