Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-22-16  AlicesKnight: All power to <MissScarlett> and <Sally Simpson> (see Stahlberg vs Euwe, 1937). Indeed an interesting game. Euwe's knight, fairly static, seems to exert more influence than both of Keres', and the calm handling of the 30.Bxg7 offer is classy.
Jan-11-22  jerseybob: Euwe was still world champ at the time of the Olympics, and in this game he looks it.

  perfidious: A coolly played defence by Euwe.

  NatashaFatale: Could one of you real chess players please tell me why, after 22.g4, Euwe didn't just say "Thank you" and play Bxg4?
Jan-12-22  Retireborn: He must have been afraid of the reply 23.Rg2, although White has nothing then. As played Keres could equalise with 24.Re2 (Houdini), but he was evidently fixed on the idea of putting the rook on the g-file.

  NatashaFatale: Thanks <Retireborn>. I did see Rg2 but, as you say, I didn't see what it would buy me.
Jan-12-22  sneaky pete: Euwe wrote in his notes in Tijdschrift that both players overlooked that after the intended 22... Bxg4 23.f5 .. black can simply play 23... Bxf5 (24.Rxf5 Qg6+). So it's a case of double chess blindness.
Jan-12-22  Retireborn: <sneaky pete> Thanks. Good to see you're still with us.
