   Feb-03-16 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1935 (replies)
Old Woodpusher: I am not really sure why - perhaps it is the barrage of central pawns bearing down on Alekhine's king, or maybe the depth of Euwe's strategy - which are variations on a theme anyway - but this has always been one of my favourite games. I don't know how many times I have ...

Old Woodpusher: I read the bio. page on William Winter, & it confirmed some detail I had read on him in a 1970's copy of Chess magazine. Didn't know that he had been imprisoned though. Does anyone know of any other biographical information on him ? Thanks.
