Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-15-08  Knight13: <5...Bf5 6. Nh4 Bc8> Exactly the reason why I used to play ...h6 at first, but looking at this game the bishop's out-in time is well spent in placing the knight on the rim.
Jul-13-09  DWINS: <Knight13>, Purdy gives 6...Bc8!! and calls it a brilliant innovation. He says, "The knight is left pawing the air; and if he withdraws, naturally Euwe repeats-having the Black pieces and a level score."

Euwe missed a win by 25...Bd3 or Lasker's move 25...a5!, fixing the weak pawn on a4 before proceeding.
