Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-08  Knight13: Rarely do we see someone allow moves like 20...Bxh3 to be played.

24...e4 looks bad, but 24...Bg4 25. e4 doesn't help black either.

Aug-19-09  WhiteRook48: Euwe's worst tournament
Aug-19-09  parisattack: Reshevsky was close to his 1950-55 prime here but, yes, Euwe had a dreadful tournament.
Aug-19-09  AnalyzeThis: The Euwe who put 20 wins on the board against Alekhine and held the title of world champion would have played the Slav defense here, which he was very strong with. I don't know what the reasons were for the switch, but Euwe gave Alekhine all he could handle with that opening.
Nov-28-10  soothsayer8: Wow, and Reshevsky didn't even need to use his a1 rook! =O
