Jul-06-03  Bears092: the idea being 25...fxg5 26. Qh8+ Rg8 27. Rf1+ Ke8 28. Qxg8 mate, I assume

  crafty: 25. ... ♘xe6 26. dxe6 ♕b6+ 27. ♔h1 fxg5 28. ♕h8+ ♖g8 29. ♖f1+ ♕f2 30. ♖xf2+ ♔e8 31. ♕xg8#   (eval Mat06; depth 11 ply; 10M nodes)

  patzer2: <Bears 092> You have the right idea for the winning continuation after 25. Rg5! Crafty's sequence simply gives a series of moves (mostly useless attempts to give up material and apply spite checks) which only slightly delays the mating pattern.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Three tactical themes are found in Euwe's winning 25 Rg5!

(1) "Attacking the pinned piece" (Rook on g7) and thus "sacrificing the attacking piece in order to remove the guard" (Pawn on f6).

(2) "Removing the guard" twice in a combination. Note that the second removing the guard tactic in this combination is either 27. Rf1+ in bears092's continuation or 29. Rf1+ in crafty's continuation.

(3) Exploiting the "weak back rank" to mate.

Jul-06-03  Rama: Huh! What I saw was 25. Rxc7 Qxc7, 26. Qh8+ Rg8, 27. Rxf6+ exf6, 28. Qxf6+ Ke8, Qf7 mate...a deflection sac of the QR.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: <Rama> In your proposed 25. Rxc7 line above, after 28. Qxf6+Ke8 29. Qf7+ (+ not #) QxQf7 30. exf7 Kxf7 white has missed the win and is now lost.

  perfidious: Since the game R Byrne-Fischer, US ch 1962, 4....b5 has been considered an effective equaliser in this line.
Aug-25-08  Prudov: Euwe uses this game in his book The Road to Chess Mastery. He features as the master. However, in fairness I have to add that he also presents games in this book he lost like an amateur, e.g. Euwe vs Capablanca, 1922
