Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-05  Runemaster: A neat finish. Black threatens 33...Rxfl+, 34.Bxfl, Rxh2#

Earlier there was some strange play from Euwe - perhaps he underestimated his young opponent. Euwe gives up the exchange for a huge pawn on d6. After 22...b5 led to the capture of the f4 and subsequent undermining of the pawn chain, White didn't have enough compensation for the exchange.

Sep-25-13  jerseybob: I like black's 8..Nc6; it has a Ragozin feel, and white's first misstep immediately follows, with the positionally-suspect 9.Ne5!? After 10..Nd7! if,Ne5. Sounder might be or 9.Na3!? And I don't terribly like - Rfd1 might be better - but it's all part of white's plan to get a "strong" passer on d6. Finally, Euwe gives up the exchange with 15.ed? He would still have a playable game with 15.Rfe1. The game finishes with some nice tactics from Bolbochan and Euwe never has a chance.
