99_training match Alekhine - Euwe 1926/27 (10 ga
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

"Nach viermonatigem Aufenthalt in Südamerika war ich im Dezember 1926 heimgekehrt und mußte bereits eine Woche später in Holland gegen Dr. Euwe antreten. Diese Veranstaltung war schon ein Jahr vorher vereinbart. Es handelte sich um zehn Übungspartien ... Ich spielte zum ersten Mal nach der neuen Zeitkontrolle von 40 Zügen in 2 1/2 Stunden. ...ungewohnt und ich hatte infolge dessen sehr stark unter Zeitnot zu leiden. ...

Das Resultat (+3, -2, = 5 zu meinen Gunsten) entsprach ungefähr den beiderseitigen Leistungen. Dr. Euwe spielte weit sicherer, ich hingegen war ihm taktisch überlegen, beging aber eine große Anzahl von Zeitnotfehlern. So z.B. stand ich in der 1., 7. und 9. Partie glatt auf Gewinn, erzielte aber aus diesen drei Partien nur einen (!) Punkt...."

A. Aljechin, "Auf dem Wege zur Weltmeisterschaft 1923-1927", de Gruyter, 4. Aufl., 1978, S. 132

Aljechin kommentiert hier seine 2., 3. und 10. Partie.

"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."
