Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-04  samvega: Nice illustration of hypermodernism. White gains space and tempo in the opening, but also gets overextended.

Nice tactical effort by Euwe. I wonder if he was trying too hard with 15.Qe4. Is 15.Nf7 Qxf7 16.fe better? If 16..Qd7 (or other queen moves) or 16..Bd6, white seems to maintain some initiative in compensation for the material.

Dec-18-04  Milo: What was wrong with the standard pin break 9.Bxf7+?
Dec-18-04  Milo: Hoping for 9...Kxf7 10.Ng5+ and 11.Qxg4, for those who aren't familiar with the idea. Sure, white will give up a center pawn, but shouldn't he have compensation = bishops + castling?
Dec-18-04  Milo: Well, no bishops actually, but still.

  tpstar: <Milo> 9. Bxf7+?? Kxf7 10. Ng5+ Qxg5! 11. fxg5 Bxd1 12. Kxd1 Nxe5 and Black is up a piece. Watch for desperado continuations which spoil tactical shots.
Dec-18-04  Milo: Thanks.

  tpstar: <Milo> You bet; that's why we study these games, to improve and learn for later. Note 11. Qd5+ Be6 leads to the same difference. It's very good to recognize the pattern, but just as crucial to know when the pattern doesn't work. Keep at it. ;>)

  juan31: Con los juegos que he visto el Maestro Breyer, demuestra tener "eso" que sólo un Gran Maestro posee, en este caso sus caballos fueron imparables.

Oct-24-14  SeanAzarin: 27... N/5-K6 was a decisive, if obvious, tactical shot. After that Euwe didn't have time to save the B. Well done by Breyer.
