  offramp: Capablanca defends very well. 25...Qxc2 is a cool move; there's a potential fork on c6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: 20.b4! might have caused some alarm.

  Dionysius1: It must have felt good having the initiative for so long against Capablanca. Sir Stuart Milner-Barry was the president of the Civil Service Chess Club when I was playing for it in the 1980s

  offramp: When I go to the Civil Service Club on Great Scotland Yard there is a meeting room upstairs named after him. He demonstrates a wonderful thing about chess: one can be a beautiful, enlightened, jainist human, but your chess can be as violent as you want.

  keypusher: I remember in the Zurich tournament book Bronstein wrote that a combination in a certain game followed the pattern of Milner-Barry v. Capablanca. I had no idea what he was talking about. Now I can't find the game...such is life. And knowledge.
