  technical draw: Not a very good game by Euwe. But at least the opening is interesting. Queens gambit Invitation of the Zukertort opening. Sounds like a loser.
Jan-01-11  fanius: "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 can analyze?

Jan-01-11  aliejin: The first part of the game is played on a
vague by both parties (Alekhine must
to play 11 f4 ....with good game and should Euwe
play 17 Nf5 with advantage) But this is rewarded
for the brilliant final combination
