  Honza Cervenka: 19.Be3 is good, but white could have played also immediately 19.Bh3! with idea 19...fxg5? 20.Nxg5 Qb8 (what else?) 21.Bxe6+ Kf8 22.e5 Bb4 23.Qf5+ with quick mate. After 19.Bh3 Qd7 20.d5 Qxb5 21.Bxe6+ play could have transposed into the position of actual game or white could have tried something else, for example 19.Bh3 Qd7 20.e5 Be7 21.exf6 gxf6 22.Qe4 Ng7 23.Bh6
Jan-13-09  jovack: a lot of good ideas in this game
gg for white
May-06-09  mannetje: This game was annotated by Euwe in his book "Handboek voor de gevorderde schaker III" (manual for the advanced chess player, part 3). This is an example of how to use a central space advantage.

He thinks 8...Be7 is a mistake, he should have played 8...Bd6 or 8...e5. He also mentions 19.Bh3 Qd7 but then he only considers 20.Qb3 and 20.d5, so he doesn't think 19.Bh3 is much better than the game.

Maybe I'll post everything some day. It's written in Dutch, so it will take some time to translate.
