  Honza Cervenka: To play against own mentor is always difficult. Vera probably tried to surprise her trainer with choice of the opening (I don't know any other game of her, where she used Scandinavian Defense, she usually played French as black after 1.e4) but she apparently was not much comfortable with it, she played very passively and fell under classic Kingside attack without any counter-play. In the opening it was better to try to castle Queenside, for example instead of 12...Nb6 black could try 12...Qd7 with next 0-0-0. But as Maroczy did not exploit all inaccuracies of black (25.g5 or 29.Qg4 were probably better than text moves), the game was decided by blunder 29...Nd5?? (29...Bxf6 was necessary), which allowed white to win with elegant but quite simple combination.
