  Gypsy: <... Euwe and Tarrasch also played in Haague. It was a tournament possibly unlike any other in the history of chess. Players were given positions from classic chess games and task to "complete" tense positions with White- and with Black pieces. Thus it transpired, for instance, that Morphy played Black in Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858, from the critical position after the 19th move of White [19.Ne5...], much better in 1858 than Euwe against Tarrasch in 1922! ...> Jan Kalendovsky: "Richard Reti, A Chess Thinker".

Euwe chose 19...Nxd4 20 Bxd4 c5, but went down in flames.

Test yourself in the other variation : How does White play if Black accepts with 19...Nxe5 20 dxe5 Rxe5

  Gypsy: <tamar> Cool puzzle!

(I think I have figured it out, but I deleted the solution. The page looks better without it.)
