Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-08  Monoceros: Up to the 33rd move this is Game 24 from <The Road to Chess Mastery> by Max Euwe and Walter Meiden, which contains analyses of twenty-five games between amateur or expert players and masters. No names are given but I'm fairly sure that all the games are Euwe's.

In the book, though, Black plays 33...Kb8, puts up a bit less of a fight--White keeps the queenside passed pawns, while in this score he loses them--and winds up mated on the 49th move. I suppose Euwe thought that the alternative line would be more instructive, although it's a little odd that he'd rewrite a game to go worse for himself.

Feb-02-09  Sam K: Monoceros, I'm not seeing what you are saying? What do you mean by "...winds up mated on the 49th move..."? Here, there is not even a check on move 49 by either white or black! You've got my curiosity up though about that book you mention .. By " the book" would you be meaning instead the book "Chess Master vs. Chess Amateur" (1994) with the same author names? Of course, Manuel Aaron however was no amateur (as I read on Wikipedia online).
