|Aug-29-05|| ||jorgegatica: What if Black just waits?
and oscillates the rook between a7 and c7?
Anyway, magnificent demostration of technique against a world champion!
|Aug-29-05|| ||RookFile: I think you mean 44...Rc7 instead
of 45. Ra2. Hmm. Maybe white can
play f3 and e4.
|Aug-31-05|| ||beatgiant: <jorgegatica, RookFile>
Against the passive defense with 44...Rc7 and oscillating the rook, White can play for g5 undermining the e5 squre, followed by attacking the weak pawn structure.|
For example, 44...Rc7 45. h4 Ra7 (or 45...h6 46. g5 fxg5+ 47. hxg5 also looks great for White) 46. g5 fxg5+ 47. hxg5. I don't see how Black can avoid going down a second pawn in the near future.

|Jan-04-08|| ||Jim Bartle: That is one travellin' white queen's knight.|
|Jul-25-13|| ||TheFocus: <Salo Flohr's Best Games of Chess> gives the final move as 46.Kf3.|
The first 8 moves there are 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.cxd5 exd5 4.Nc3 Nf6 5.Bg5 Be7 6.e3 c6 7.Bd3 Nbd7 8.Nf3 O-O.
|Jul-26-13|| ||thomastonk: The match - or at least the Amsterdam leg - has been supported by the Dutch newspaper "Het Volk", the newspaper of the Social Democratic Worker's Party. Euwe, btw, lead a chess column there, and the newspaper called the match "Het Volk-tweekamp". |
The game has been played on March 25, 1932. The evening issue of "Het Volk"
printed the first 18 moves: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.Bg5 Nbd7 6.cxd5 exd5 7.e3 Le7 8.Ld3 0-0 etc.
The next day, "Het Volk" published this one: http://www.pic-upload.de/view-20185....
Another Dutch newspaper, "Algemeen Handelsblad", printed the complete game with comments on March 26. The first moves are as in "Het Volk". The final phase is described as follows: 'The game became a rook ending, which has been adjourned a few moves later. At the restart of the game, Euwe realized quickly that the game cannot be saved, and he resigned at the 46th move.' The game score ends with 46.Kf3.
A third Dutch newspaper, "Het Vaderland" published the game with different comments on March 26, too. The first moves are the same as in the other newspapers. 2.. c6 has an extra comment about Euwe's preference for this move and the intention and possiblity to get a Cambridge Springs. Again, the game ends with 46.Kf3.
|Jul-26-13|| ||TheFocus: <thomastonk> Great work. So we can conclude that the game-score I gave is incorrect. And we can agree that 46.Kf3 is the correct move.|
|Jan-13-15|| ||sachistu: For what it's worth, you can add Ceskoslovensky Sach 1932, p74 to the sources listing White's final move as 46.Kf3. Was a correction slip submitted, or has the site just not posted the correction?|
|Oct-24-17|| ||Tabanus: In http://www.delpher.nl/nl/kranten/vi... (Algemeen Handelsblad of 26 March), Euwe has White.|
|Oct-24-17|| ||Stonehenge: Probably just some random moves for the photo.|
|Sep-04-18|| ||Howard: Point Count Chess gives the moves starting with 20.b4, and the book actually goes as far as to say that White has "practically a forced win" at this point.|
Sounds like a blatant exaggeration. White's successful minority attack isn't actually set in stone.
|Sep-04-18|| ||perfidious: <Howard....White's successful minority attack isn't actually set in stone.>|
To put it mildly; matter of fact, if Black could swing his knight round to c4 and get in ...b5, he would stand better because there would be nothing to attack c6, whereas he would have a free hand to play against the enemy king.
|Sep-04-18|| ||nok: 21...Nc7 seems passive. I'd put it on g5.|
