Jul-13-04  tayer: It is amazing how Capablanca maneuvers on the endgame. It seems so easy but it is so hard to play like this.
Jul-13-04  chesscookie: <taver> Thats what made capablaca THE one and only capablanca
Sep-25-07  patzerboy: Don't overlook the note after Black's 55th move. Black blundered. Had he played correctly, he should have drawn.

That doesn't invalidate the points you each make, however. The slightest misstep and Capa pounces!

Well, after 55...Kg6 white can play 56.Bf3 instead of Maroczy's 56.Rh8 and then white is still better: 56...Rdxb6 57.Rg5+ Kf6 58.Rh2 a5 59.Rh6+ Ke7 60.Rgg6 Rd7 61.Rg7+ Kd8 62.Rxd7+ Kxd7 63.Bxd5 etc.
