Dec-04-04  kostich in time: a vigorous attack by the player of the day culminates in a threatened smothered mate.

  GrahamClayton: The exchange sacrifice 21.♖d6! is fully justified, with Euwe gaining control of the f6 square, along with his bishop bearing down on the Black king from d5.

  SteinitzLives: This game was included in an old games collection book, the name of which escapes me, but after black copied white's second move, the annotator humorously pointed out: Even black's name suggests conformity.
