Oct-19-05  notyetagm: Capablanca exploits the weak-dark squares on the queenside with the remoresless precision of a machine.

Capablanca's chess fascinates me because he finds so many different ways to beat his opponents. <Here Mieses has only one weakness, the queenside dark-squares, but that is enough to lose the full point to Capablanca.>

Jul-04-07  sanyas: 34.a4 is up next.
Jul-04-07  CapablancaFan: <sanyas> 34.a4 or e4, what difference does it make? Both moves create a passed pawn, LOL.
Aug-04-15  Petalsian: <CapablancaFan> sanyas said 34.a4 because this wins another pawn(the b pawn). 34.a4 bxa4?? 35.Rxb7
Aug-04-15  1971: <notyetagm> Your comments are the best, always entertaining it's cool, finding them in these deep, obscure games in the database.

  perfidious: This game is very much between two players of different classes: one with great positional understanding, the other lacking in that department, a fatal shortcoming when handling these QGD Exchange-type structures.

Two gnats on one page.

Killtown express, now boarding......

Aug-04-15  1971: Haha!
