|Dec-17-02|| ||ughaibu: This was Capablanca's worst tournament, it's said that he suffered a stroke during it. It's probably Fine's best tournament, they played two exciting draws. Here I think Fine's mistake was f4, I read somewhere that if he first excahanges queens then plays f4 his position is much better. |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: AVRO marked the end of both Capablanca and Alekhine. |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Sabatini: JR Capablanca later did well at Margate and was without a loss in the Buenos Aires chess olympics. |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: Perhaps I spoke too soon. |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: Could you tell about the weather during the 1927 match? |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Sabatini: I do not know about the weather in Buenos Aries in the spring of 1927. How would I know that? |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: I was under the impression that you hailed from down that way. I must have had you confused with somebody else. Pero ché, no sos argentino. |
|Dec-19-02|| ||Sabatini: Not exactly. |
|Dec-20-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: Tant mieux; passons. |
|Jul-09-04|| ||offramp: He's joking - he's talking about Gabriella Sabatini |
|Dec-18-04|| ||capanegra: This was a great fight. <ughaibu>, I think your right, 22.♕xf5 ♗xf5 23.f4 could have been better for White. But even after that, Fine still had the chance to get a superior ending: 26.fxe5! and Black is in deep trouble. If 26...♖xg2+ 27.♖xg2 ♗xg2 28.e6+! And if 26...♕xe5 27.h3! ♖h4 28.♕xd4 ♕xd4 29.♘xd4 ♗xg2 30.♘f5.|
The move 26.♘c5? gave Capablanca the opportunity to reply with a bright combination with ♗xg2!-♖ag8!-exf4! threatening f3 and ♕xc5 at the same time. Unfortunately he missed 42...f5! at the end, which would have resulted in a favorable Queen ending.

this is wrong. 22.f4 is a very good move (in fact winning).
the mistake was 26.nc5? while fe:! was the winning move. belavenetz has analysed this position.
|Mar-25-05|| ||RookFile: Although Capablanca was not at his
best, this game shows what a terrific
defender he was.
|Aug-14-07|| ||Karpova: Reinfeld says after 26.Nc5 that <Fine had six minutes left for thirteen moves, Capablanca only had one minute left!> which is amazing.|
|Aug-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: and he drew|
|Jul-21-10|| ||sevenseaman: <ughaibu> yes. It is important for white to exchange Queens as early as possible.
Hereon after qeens are off the board white has a better position.

And he takes out an attacking piece from the combining Q<R and ws B.
|Mar-30-15|| ||Howard: Hans Ree once said in New in Chess that Fine missed a win in this game.|
Was it on the 26th move ?
|Mar-30-15|| ||jvv: Yes, probably 26.Nc5 was the last mistake.|
|Feb-27-16|| ||perfidious: <Kulla Tierchen: AVRO marked the end of both Capablanca and Alekhine.>|
Alekhine underwent a reincarnation during WWII.
