|May-07-05|| ||tamar: I am getting hooked on these Euwe-Rubinstein match-ups. They seem to feature material imbalances, and it is a question of who can see further down myriad branches.|
Rubinstein tries to exploit the unguarded rook at d1 with 21...Nxe5 , but Euwe co-ordinates his pieces beautifully and changes the nature of the position with 22 d5!
|May-07-05|| ||tamar: In retrospect, 21...cxd4 first would have eliminated the d5 push and left a equal looking battle of
and versus and
21...cxd4 22 Bxd4 Nxe5 23 Rd2 Bxf1 24 Kxf1 Ng4 25 h3 Nf6
or after 21...cxd4
22 exd4 Bxf1 23 Kxf1 Nxe5 24 d5 Qb5+! and Black avoids the game continuation
|May-07-05|| ||Knezh: I seem to envounter this particular line a lot in internet blitz as black. It is very effective, fairly risk-free and has a good winning percentage for white.What is the best recommended counter to it?|
|May-07-05|| ||RookFile: I think maybe with black, you can
try to delay castling, and pile up
your pieces on e5. See if you can
delay or hinder the Ne5 move.
It was tough once black castled.
Let's say he goes 8... cxd4 9. exd4
Qc7. White continue 10. Re1 and
this Ne5 is still going to happen.
I think the trick is, development
of black's white squred bishop can
be delayed. It doesn't have much
of a future, and connecting rooks
isn't particularly imprortant when
there are no open files yet.
|May-07-05|| ||tamar: <Knezh> No one seems to have developed a fool-proof formula for Black. Miles and Yermolinsky had success throwing in an early ...Qa5+ check, with the thought that c3 doesn't really help White and gets into less threatening Colle structures, I suppose.|
Where to place the Queen is a big question. Rubinstein put it on e7, Lasker on c7 and Nimzowitsch had the most original startegy of all, not developing the Queen until move 19, just pawn play on the queen-side.

|Apr-12-07|| ||whiteshark: <22. d5!>
Met aanval op het paard, zodat zwart machteloos is tegen de nu volgende opening van de d-lijn. De daardoor mogelijke verbinding van de witte torens blijkt beslissend te zijn.
|Jun-23-09|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Once White had connected his s with 22.d5! and 24.hd8, Black's was helpless. It had nothing to attack, while White could gang up on weak spots with the extra firepower. Some good tactics finished the game.|
