Alekhine-Euwe match 1926/7
Compiled by crawfb5

The two world championship matches between Alekhine and Euwe are well known. This match is not as famous. Dutch supporters of Euwe wanted to sponsor a match against a top master to be played in the Netherlands. Lasker declined and Bogoljubov wanted too high a fee. Alekhine, however, was willing, probably as a way to help prepare for his upcoming WC match with Capablanca.

It was a very even match, with victory in Euwe's hands with a better position in the final game, but he stuffed it up. Euwe's biographer writes that Lasker was one of the few people to shake his head after Euwe's 17th move, with most spectators only noticing the wheels beginning to fall off later in the game. Anyone familiar with this match should not have been surprised that the 1935 WC match was not the rout everyone expected.
