Jan-01-03  morphynoman2: 29... Qa5 is a blunder. White could take the knight in e4, but... what to do?

  Honza Cervenka: 29...Rg6+ would have been okay for black. Especially after 30.Kh1?? Nf2#:-D

29...Rg6+ 30.Bg2 Qa5 looks fine.

Aug-05-05  Calli: They also played the same 11½ moves in the first game of the match. Euwe vs Keres, 1939 Keres played a strange 12th move in that one.
Aug-05-05  Robin001: Keres thought black's 22. ...Bd4 was a mistake. Keres recommended 22. ...Bxe3; 23. fxe3 (forced), 23. ...Qb6!
