Dec-23-03  Lawrence: 22.....Qa8 was weak, it would have been better to accept the exchange of Queens playing 22.....Ba1 or e5 for example. (Junior 8)

  patzer2: Capa's 15. Nd5! discovered attack threat begins a series of strong deflections to exploit White's space advantage.

After 22...Qa8? 23. Bg4! Capa's attack on Black's weakened castled position becomes decisive.

  solander: First black opens the c-line with 16.- Bxd5 and then he gives it away by changing his rook on c1 allowing white to start operations. His way of playing his black square bishop is also doubtful.
