Jul-25-06  waddayaplay: I've always liked the accuracies of Euwe's sacrifices.

After 13.Nxe5 f6 14.Bxg8 fxe5 black wins back the pawn by force. 15.Ba2 exd4 , and here 16.cxd4 would be answered by Qf6, winning.

At move 16.Nd2? (Re2 is better) Bxh3! and if 17.gxh3 then Qg5+ 18.Kf1 (18.Qg4 Qxd2; 18.Kh1 Rxf2) Rxf2+! and wins

At move 23...Rxf3! and if now 24.Qxc4 then Rh3 with the threat Rh1# .

Aug-19-07  wolfmaster: Beautiful game.
Nov-22-09  Xeroxx: Dis game roxx.
May-14-19  sneaky pete: For this game Euwe was awarded the second brilliancy prize.
