|Mar-10-11|| ||chesschampion11: pretty nice fork at the final position!|
|Nov-20-11|| ||indoknight: Anatoli Karpov is the reincarnation of Jose Raul Capablanca (lol)|

The challenge is to win against Crafty Endgame Simulator without using an engine. Good luck! Link: http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t...
|Mar-06-12|| ||Penguincw: Nice job by Capablanca for breaking through in a closed position. Again a small advantage (space) is turned into a win.|
|May-06-12|| ||tripuji: V - W|
|May-06-12|| ||Khapablanca: 35 moves without a single edchange. Is this the record?|
|May-10-12|| ||sorokahdeen: A game of amazing mastery.
This game definitely calls to mind Maroczy-Suechting, but considering some of Suechtings other games, one gets the impression that Treybal was stronger than suechting was. Still, the essential theme of massive, board-wide space advantage, leading to the black player's complete passivity and finally consignment to the last three ranks waiting for white to break through on the queenside is shared by both games.
The thing that is amazing here is that the position is the result of black's not having found a workable chance to break open the position and free his game until it finally became actually impossible, at which point white's encirclement becomes complete and he can only wait for white to find a way into his position with a win of material.
One amazing game.
|May-18-12|| ||DanielBryant: <Khapablanca> There have been many endgames where that has happened. It's obviously more unusual in the middlegame.|
|Nov-19-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Pretty impressive 'Victory formation'! ;) Awesome play on both flanks! Wow!|
|Feb-06-13|| ||SirChrislov: For an identical strategy, also see:
Maroczy vs H Suechting, 1905
|Feb-18-13|| ||markgravitygood: This game is used by Bangiev in his Squares Stategy CDs as a "Model Game", following the d4-pawn Stategy in the direction of c5, on the Black Squares, striving to occupy the black squares. Black is protecting his d5-area, but the e5-area is under control of White. White has taken control of all the important black squares: a7; c7; e7; g7. Bangiev says "In order to be able to occupy the c7-square, White should be trying to get rid of the pawn on b7, giving us a motto for the d4-Strategy: occupy the black squares, attack on the white squares.|
|Mar-26-13|| ||kevin86: Inverted pyramid...or V at move 39. A triangle fork at the end!|
|Jun-07-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Several have mentioned Maroczy vs H Suechting, 1905 as a similar game. The same theme also occurs in Schlechter vs W John, 1905 and Janowski vs Alapin, 1905. All three of these were not just from the same year, but from the same tournament! |
Must have been something in the water.
|Aug-11-13|| ||GrahamClayton: <Kuraudo>Black played 57 times--only once did he move to White's half of the board.|
That's a nice piece of trivia! I wonder what the record is for the most moves in a game without moving a piece into the opponents' half of the board?
Getting back to this game, I like Peter Lalic's comment after 35. ♕a3:
"The professional toys with the amateur, enjoying the psychological benefit of showing who's boss".
|Aug-11-13|| ||Benzol: Looking at this game I was reminded of this one played ten years earlier|
Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919
|Sep-16-13|| ||DcGentle: Today I found this game by accident. Well, don't you think there are certain similarities to Chessgames Challenge: The World vs Akobian, 2012 ? At least a V pawn formation can be detected and the game ended with a knight move!|
Seriously, the World played a very fine positional game as well, and Capablanca would be proud.

|Aug-14-14|| ||posoo: Now dis - DIS - is TRULY a game dat makes chess look like WAR.|
BARRACADE da boundary. MAKE A LITTLE HOLE and line up da troupes where they can come in. da GENEARL surveys da landscape by walking around a little bit.
THEN you line up all your forces. SOMEBODY has to charge first. HERE it is Mr. Bishap on 55. ba6.
He knew what was happening. HE SIGNED UP for da war. So he falls on da sord.
and den WHOOSH. da troops come streming in. Sadly Mr. Rook has to die too before black realizes he is on da losing side.
If blak had any sense he wood have resined after 42 Ra7. But deep down I think he likes a little bludshed.
ALL OF YOU are slightly excited by da spilling of blood. NO? Chessplayers?
|Sep-28-14|| ||Naniwazu: Compare this game with the pawn-structure that occured in Petrosian vs T Ledic, 1970 after 24...Ra7:|

Notice any similarities?
|Nov-15-14|| ||N.O.F. NAJDORF: Thank you, David2009!
That was great fun ...
|Dec-09-14|| ||solskytz: What an amazing game! What a strategical masterpiece and lesson!|
Before white advances b6, the plan looks rather suspicious to this kibitzer - is he really going to fix b7 as a target for attack? And how is he ever going to go about it?
Capablanca's answer is a definite eye opener. Thanks chessgames.com for making such exemplary games so easily available for chess students.
|Jun-19-16|| ||edubueno: 4th point|
|Nov-20-16|| ||scholes: Capa might have been cheating with computer. Did not he knew closed positions are draw|
|Oct-07-17|| ||Saniyat24: engrossing game...After White's 46 moves the board is pretty as a picture...Capablanca has gained all the initiative and space and Treybal is constricted to 5th to the 8th rank...with all his heavy artillery on the back rank...|
