  Calli: An exciting game. Euwe with a cool defense to Alekhine's attack. He follows with a precision endgame in which AA does not find the best moves.
Aug-20-08  PeterB: A very steady game - Euwe was world champion at this time. Reuben Fine has said that Euwe's losing the return match in 1937 was a "real surprise". But at this time I guess that Euwe's nerves hadn't gotten the better of him!
Aug-21-08  AnalyzeThis: In the opening, I was afraid that black's bishop on a5 would be a useless piece hanging in the breeze, but Euwe found a way to exchange it for white's bishop.
Aug-21-08  arsen387: Cool defense by Euwe

  Penguincw: Euwe must've been confident about this win with black for the upcoming world championship match.

  hoodrobin: Euwe: the most underestimated among the world champions.
Jan-27-18  ChessHigherCat: You can feel Euwe the mathematician counting all the moves in the endgame.

  Honza Cervenka: 27.f4! with threat of 28.g5 was much better.
