Mar-09-12  LoveThatJoker: GUESS-THE-MOVE:

Euwe vs Bogoljubov, 1928.
Your score: 62 (par = 43)


PS. "33. ?" Would make an excellent Tuesday puzzle.

Mar-09-12  thomastonk: <LoveThatJoker: "33. ?" Would make an excellent Tuesday puzzle.> The text move is indeed very nice, but White has also a less prosaic win: 33.Rc7 Bc8 (33.. Ba8 34.Rd7 with the idea Rd8) 34.Rc6 with the idea Rd6 and Rd8.
Mar-09-12  LoveThatJoker: <thomastonk> I'm sure you mean a *more* prosaic win! :D

33. Rc7 Bc8 34. Rc6 with the idea of Rd6 and Rd8 is an excellent maneouvre!

Good on you for posting such an excellent remark and idea on this game!

this game was played in Utrecht, and one day earlier, on 29 December 1928.

Mar-02-18  Boomie: 30. e6 is a nice finish. If 30...fxe6 31. Nxe6 Rf7 32. Nd8 and the rook is stuck on f7. If it leaves, white will play f7+ and Ne6 to queen the pawn.

So black has to give up the exchange. With the c-file primed for invasion, white should have little trouble converting.
