  plang: Keres had previously played 4 b4 against Flohr and Stahlberg but had gotten into difficulties both times. In game 22 of his 1937 rematch with Alekhine Euwe had played 6..Nf6 and lost. Euwe's new move 6..Bg4 did not work out well, however, and after 10 d4 Keres felt that White was clearly better. Keres thought that he should have played g4 a move earlier and that Euwe should have played 12..h5 to prevent it though Black's king would have had no safe haven in this case. The breakthrough 16 c5 and 17 d5! broke up Black's queenside and led to the gain of a pawn plus a winning initiative. 17..exd would have been answered by 18 Nxd5..cxd 19 Bb5 and 17..Qc8 by 18 d6 winning a piece.
