One thing though; I think inadvertently, this game is listed twice. Euwe vs Larry Evans, 1951

Still, the pawn structure Evans has by move 15 is to be studied as to how to do it; to belt; before this game is over, Evans Queen's a pawn against the one time World Champ!!

  zydeco: Wacky pawn structure by move 25.

Euwe didn't like 19.Qxb6 because of 19....Nd7 20.Q moves Qe8 forcing 21.g4.

29.a3 runs into 29....c3!

This kind of thing happens in the Queen's Indian, for instance here: Ivkov vs Spassky, 1966 White doesn't make any obvious mistakes but black has the more flexible pawn structure and seamlessly takes over the game.

May-19-15  Retireborn: <zydeco> I was analyzing this game (with the help of Houdini) just the other day, but I missed your fine point about 19.Qxb6.

Houdini thinks White should play 28.Bc1 to take the sting out of ...b3. That is certainly an ugly-looking move, but the following (sample) line is interesting;

28.Bc1 b3 29.a3 Na4 30.Kxg4 c3 31.bxc3 Rb8 32.c4 b2 33.Rb1 bxc1Q 34.Rxc1 Rb3 35.d5 Bxa3 36.Nf6+ Kf7 37.dxe6+ Kxe6 38.Rxf1 and White is still fighting.

  zydeco: <Retireborn> Interesting! You really need to be made of silicon to play a move like 28.Bc1.
