Euwe vs Breyer
[Event "Vienna"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Euwe"] [Black "Breyer"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "B00"] [Opening "Nimzowitsch Defence: 2.Nc3 Nf6"] 1. e4 Nc6 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. d4 {A thoroughly hypermodern approach. Black allows White to establish a big center, and now launches an attack against it.} 3... e5 4. dxe5 { 4.Nf3 would have led to the boring territory of the Scotch Four Knights.} 4... Nxe5 5. f4 Nc6 {White has accepted the invitation and re-established a pawn centre with gain of time.} 6. e5 { 6.Bc4! would have been more sensible. Now the centre becomes overextended.} 6... Ng8 7. Bc4 {7.Nf3 d6 8.Bb5 Bg4!? 9.h3 Bd7 10.O-O Nh6 11.Qe1 dxe5 12.fxe5 Bc5+ 13.Kh1 Nf5 14.Ne4 Be7 15.Bg5 Bxg5 16.Nfxg5 gives White a promising game.} 7... d6 {"Black has achieved an ideal position a la Steinitz and now acts to eliminate the advanced White pawn" -- Tartakower.} 8. Nf3 Bg4 9. O-O Qd7 10. Qe1 O-O-O {Although this move slightly weakens f7, it allows Black to act without restraint on the kingside.} 11. Ng5 dxe5 {Well-timed!} 12. Kh1 { 12.Nxf7? Qd4+ 13.Kh1 Qxc4 14.Nxh8 Bb4A 12.Bb3!? f6 13.Nf7 Nd4 14.Nxh8 Nxb3 15. axb3 Bc5+ 16.Kh1 exf4 17.Bxf4 g5 18.Bg3 Re8? 19.Ne4Qd4} 12... f6 { 12...Na5 comes into consideration immediately.} 13. Nf7 Na5 14. Nxd8 { 14.Bd5 c6 15.Nxh8 cxd5 16.fxe5 Bb4} 14... Nxc4 15. Qe4 Nd6 16. Qb4 {A critical position. White is counting on Black's capturing at d8, but Breyer comes up with a brilliant move which leads to a series of exchanges which leave White with a hopeless game.} 16... Be7 { 16...Qxd8, 16...Kxd8, and 16...Nh6 all fail to 17.fxe5.} 17. fxe5 fxe5 18. Nxb7 {18.Nc6! was the only chance.} 18... Nxb7 19. Rf8+ Bxf8 20. Qxf8+ Qd8 { 20...Nd8? 21.Bg5 h6 22.Bxd8 Qxd8 23.Qxg7 Nf6 24.Ne4!} 21. Qxg7 Nf6 22. Bg5 Rg8 23. Qh6 {23.Qxf6? Rxg5!} 23... Rg6 24. Qh4 Nd6 25. Rf1 Nf5 26. Qxg4 Nxg4 27. Bxd8 Nge3 28. Rf3 Kxd8 29. h3 Rg3 30. Rxg3 Nxg3+ {Black won.} 0-1
