Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-27-11  Twocolors: After 10..Nxe4 11.Nxe4 Bxe4 white would simple win with 12.Bxe6! However 10..Bg4 would be a good alternatve for black.

16..Bb4 is an error. True, Bxd4 would run into 17.Nxd4 Qxd4 18.Bg5+ and wins, but 16..Bxb2! and white has nothing better than 17.Bxb2 Qxb2 18.fxg7 and now Qb3 or Qb5 =

19..Nxe5 could be answered by the incredible 20.Re1!! (Thank you Fritz) Nf3+ 21.gxf3 Rxe1+ 22.Kg2 Qb3 23.Bg5+ Re7 24.Re1 Kc7 25.Rxe7+ Kb6 26.Rxb7+ Kxb7 27.Qd7+ Ka6 28.Qxc6+ Qb6 29.Qxa8 Bf7 30.g8Q Bxg8 31.Qxg8 Although mere humans might settle for the sober and natural 20.Bg5+ Kc7 21.Bf4 which also wins.

Great attacking play by the (then) former world champion.

Feb-28-11  sevenseaman: A good game by Euwe. Big elo difference between the two I believe.
Mar-01-11  Caissanist: Not that much, Chessmetrics has them about 140 points apart:
Jul-27-11  Jitanjafora: This game is commented by Kasparov in "My great predecessors. Vol. 2"
May-10-12  Swedish Logician: The game Gavrikow - Dorfman was played shortly after the death of Euwe; a suitable tribute to a great player Gavrikov vs Dorfman, 1981
