Han Hollander interviews Max Euwe and Capablanca

Han Hollander interviews Max Euwe and Capablanca, click link in red at left. Hat tip chessBase.com, here.

'Radio Reporter Han Hollander speaks with José Raúl Capablanca and Max Euwe about the forthcoming match Euwe-Alekhine. The video starts with Hollander playing a game against Euwe and thinking he is lost. Capablanca then enters and shows him how he can actually win the position.

'They then discusses the upcoming World Championship match between Euwe and Alekhine, on which Capablanca says (at 1:15 into the video): "Dr. Alekhine's game is 20% bluff. Dr. Euwe's game is clear and straightforward. Dr. Euwe's game – not so strong as Alekhine's in some respects – is more evenly balanced."'
