Jun-13-04  drukenknight: Here is one of the early victories for the Macutheon for whoever it that's looking at this. Euwe seems to get in trouble when he allows his Q to be driven back on the K side. Funny enuf, Castaldi may have missed the strongest continuation w/ 31...Ba4. Sound familiar? Take a look at that Kovacevic game again.
Apr-06-07  Ulhumbrus: Castaldi did not play ..c4 but opened the c file by ..cxd4.
Aug-28-08  Ulhumbrus: The move 15...0-0-0 suggests 15 Qf4 hindering that move
Jan-16-09  WhiteRook48: Euwe got a loss! :-)
