<26.Qh6 f4 27.Qf6!! 1-0. The second sacrifice, again on an empty square, leaves Black defenceless against mate. A beautiful finish by Werle, and one in keeping with the traditions of Dutch chess as Ray Keene pointed out, Max Euwe was also famous for sacrifices on empty squares, as in such games as Alekhine-Euwe, Zurich 1934, and Geller-Euwe, Zurich 1953!>
