Nov-20-02  bishop: Euwe shows us the vulnerability of the White Pawn center.
Nov-20-02  drukenknight: And he makes the game of chess look like childs play. When Euwe wins it really looks easy. Hmmm what about:

14 Be6?

there is small material difference in the two sides, but white has a large positional problem getting the K to safety. Typical of the Four Pawns huh?

Feb-13-06  mofoman: Euwe also lost lots of games against E. Colle, so i dont think it was really like childs play here. :-)

  GrahamClayton: 9...♕b6 stops White from castling (10.0-0 c4+ wins a piece). Notice how Euwe does not rush to reclaim the sacrificed piece with 15..f5, instead bolstering the protection of the c4-pawn, before playing 16...f5

Fact is that in classical games <Max Euwe beat Edgar Colle 15 to 6, with 5 draws>.
