   Dec-14-17 E Eliskases vs L Engels, 1941
Mateo: Both players were part of the german team in the Olympiad of Buenos Aires, 1939. And both players stayed n South America at the beginning of the II World War. Eliskases wrote a book about the tournament of Aguas de Sao Pedro, 1941. It is called Stellungsspiel. Juli 1941, Turnier von ...
   Dec-11-17 Caruana vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
Mateo: 25.Rxc6! bxc6 26.Nd4 looks playable.
   Dec-09-17 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1937 (replies)
Mateo: <john barleycorn> Interesting. Could you provide some quotes?
   Dec-09-17 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1937 (replies)
Mateo: I wonder why Euwe did not play 25.Rxb7.
   Dec-05-17 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1936
Mateo: I expected to read much more comments about this highly interesting game. 32...Kg8? was played to defend gainst the threat Rh7+. However, after 33.Qe5! White is winning after a forced variation. 32...Qf6 was a better attempt to hold the game, although White has an edge.
   Dec-01-17 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1936
Mateo: Beautiful game from Euwe. 29...Qf5! was very accurate. If he plays instead the 'obvious' 29...fxg5?, 30.Qxg5+ Kf7 31.Rad1!, White has strong play. After the cool-blooded 29...Qf5!, the Knight will not escape.
   Nov-29-17 C H Alexander vs Botvinnik, 1936
Mateo: Funny comment from Alexander quoted by keypusher. By the way, Alexander was part of the cryptographic team surrounding Alan Turing, who decoded the famous Enigma code. He can be seen in the movie The Imitation game, where he is played by actor Matthew Goode.
   Nov-29-17 Euwe vs Reshevsky, 1936
Mateo: 43.a5! was a cool-blooded pawn sacrifice completely justified. Very nice.
   Nov-23-17 Capablanca vs Ragozin, 1936
Mateo: This is simply an amazing middle game from Capablanca. I checked the game with Stockfish. The computer thinks Capablanca played the best moves from move 12 until move 25! They used to say he was the chess machine...
   Nov-20-17 Lasker vs E Eliskases, 1936 (replies)
Mateo: <DrGridlock> The problem is that the Lasker line is not forced at all, and from the beginning. For instance, Stockfish prefers 29...a5 30.Ra7 Rb8 with a small edge for White...
