5. e3 Nbd7 6. Nf3 O-O 7. Rc1 c6 8. Bd3 dxc4 9. Bxc4 b5 {If
Black wants to adopt this particular defence (instead of
...Nd5) it is better to play first 8...h6 and after 9 Bh4
dxc4, etc. The difference will soon be apparent.} 10. Bd3 a6
11. a4 {This move-which would be the best, had Black already
played h6-leads here to practically nothing. 10 e4, on the
other hand, which would be bad after ...h6 Bh4 because of the
answer Nxe4! (see Euwe-Alekhine 28th match game) would here
secure an appreciable advantage in space.} bxa4 12. Nxa4 Qa5+
13. Nc3 {Here is the difference. White cannot play 13 Nd2, his
queen bishop being lose.} c5 {This weakness being eliminated,
Black will have no difficulty in equalising the game.} 14. Ra1
Qb4 15. O-O Bb7 {15...Qxb4 was inadvisable as after 16 Nb5
White would threaten not only 17 Nc7 but also Rb1-a1-b1 with a
secure draw.} 16. Qe2 {Sugessting a series of exchanges, after
which the remaini9ng pawn material makes a peaceful result
almost inevitable.} cxd4 17. exd4 Bxf3 18. Qxf3 Qxd4 19. Bxa6
Qb6 20. Bb5 Rxa1 21. Rxa1 Ne5 22. Qe2 Ng6 23. Be3 {The two
bishops are of little value here, since they have no weak
points to attack; and the advance of the b-pawn can easily be
prevented. Dr. Lasker's defence has been, as usual, very
accurate.} Qb8 24. g3 Rc8 25. Ba7 Qc7 26. Ra6 Qb7 27. Bc4
{This attempt to advance the b-pawn merely leads to further
simplification.} Ne5 28. Qxe5 Rxc4 29. Qb8+ Qxb8 30. Bxb8 Rc8

forfeit a tempo so as to get rid of the Bishop. Black has
quickly managed to equalise.} Nf6 8.Nxb6 axb6 9.Nxc6 {This

centre, giving him the initiative.} bxc6 10.Bd3 Qe7 11.O-O Qe5

22.Bc2 Ra5 23.Qc1 Kh8 24.Qd1 Re7 25.Qd2 Bb3 26.Bxb3 {This
exchange is forced for if he retreated Bb1 Black would get an
overwhelming position by advancing his c-pawn and later
playing his Knight to d3 via c5.} Qxb3 27.Rc1 Qf7 28.Rd1
{Better would be c4.} Kg8 29.Qc2 Ra8 30.Ree1 b5 31.Ra1 Nc5

swapped Queens, the b-pawn would prove untenable in the long
run.} Rae8 37.Bf2 Re6 {Black is about to move his King over to
the Queen-Wing and there is little that White can do about
it.} 38.Qb1 h5 {To forestall an attack on the pawn by e5, once
the Black King has moved.} 39.h3 Kf7 40.g4 {White must weaken
his own position in the attempt to disturb Black's plan by an
attack.} hxg4 41.hxg4 d5 42.exd5 Rxe1+ 43.Bxe1 {Rxe1 is ruled

Be7 13.e4 cxd4 14.Nxd4 Ne5 15.Bg5 O-O 16.Nf3 Qc5 17.Be3 Qc4 {A
forcible move. If Qxc4 Nxc4; Black threatens Nxb2 or Nxe4 or
Nxa3.} 18.Nxe5 Qxe2 19.Nxe2 Rxc2 20.Nd4 Rc5 {20...Rxb2 would
be a gross blunder because of 21.Nd3.} 21.Nd3 Rc4 22.f3 Rd8

31.Rd2 f5 32.exf5 Nxf5+ 33.Kf2 Bd5 {Black is in a difficulty,
and therefore decides on a desperate sacrifice of a pawn, in
order to render the Bishop mobile.} 34.Nxa6 {34.Rxd5 was also
feasible. But after the exchanges Black's King would then have
a very favorable position in the center, both for attack on
the Queen's side and defense of the King's side. 34.Nxa6 is
stronger as 34...Ra7 will not do because of 35.Rxd5.} Rc1
35.Nb4 Kd6 36.Nb3 Rh1 37.h3 Rb1 38.g4 Ne7 39.Nd4 Kc5 40.Ne2 {A
mistake. White ought to have clinched matters. 40.Nxd5 exd5
41.Ne6+ Kc4 42.Nxg7 and in answer to 42...d4 (or 42...Kb3
43.Nf5; the game might then have developed ...Nc6 44.Nd6)
43.Nf5 Nc6 44.Nd6+ Kb3 45.Nxb5 Rxb2 46.Ke2! and whilst the
d-pawn would now be paralyzed, White's Pawns would become very
dangerous.} Rh1 41.Kg2 Ra1 42.Rc2+ Bc4 43.Nc3 Nd5 44.Ne4+ Kd4
{He ought to have gone to b6. White would, in this case, have
had no alternative but to try for a doubtful win by 45.Nxd5
exd5 46.Nd2 g5; he would probably have had to sacrifice his
h-pawn.} 45.Rxc4+ Kxc4 46.Nd2+ Kd4 47.Nb3+ Ke3 48.Nxd5+ exd5

5. c3 Nf6 {The sacrifice of the e-pawn is quite justified.}
6. Nxe5 O-O 7. d4 Bd6 8. Nf3 {Should White defend the Pawn by
8.Nd2, Black would play Bxe5, and the resulting doubled Pawn
would be defenceless.} Nxe4 9. Bd3 Re8 10. O-O h6 {White's
threat of Bxe4 followed by Ng5 and Qh5, was only apparent,
hence the defensive move of h6 was not necessary. The right
play was 10...Nd7, followed by Ndf6 in reply to any developing
moves of White. If then, however, 11.Bxe4 Rxe4 12.Ng5 Re7
13.Qh5 h6 14.Nxf7? Qe8, winning a piece for three pawns, with
a good position for attack.} 11. Nbd2 Nf6 12. Nc4 c5 13. Nfe5
cxd4 {He could not play 13...Be6 as 14.Nxd6 Qxd6 15.Bxh6 would
have broken up his King's wing.} 14. Nxf7 {A pretty and

bare the damage done by Black's tenth move.} Kxf7 15. Qh5+ Kg8

weak. After the text the positions are equalized.} Bxc5
9.Qxd8+ Kxd8 10.a3 Ke7 11.b4 Bd6 12.b5 {The idea of this

his Pawns into the center. White should not underestimate the

he should not lose time. He could very well have met the
menace of placing the Knight on f4 by the manouver Nb3-c1-d3.}

misplaced. After dxc5, Bxc5, the White f-pawn is very weak. If
Black takes on d5, that Pawn remains isolated and weak in the
