Dec-26-04  Whitehat1963: Why a draw at this point? What do the chess engines say about the ending position and the likely next few moves? (Also features the opening of the day.)
Dec-26-04  sneaky pete: <Whitehat> Capablanca offered a draw and Réti accepted, maybe without having a good look at the position after black's last move. Capablanca after all was the unbeatable world champion in 1925. According to Bogolyubov in the tournament book the game would have been even after 33... Qf6 (34.Bf1 Ne5 35.Bg2 ..).

"After 33... Qh5? 34.Qd4+ Kh7 35.Bf3 .. (of course not 35.Bxc6? Rd8!) 35... Qh2+ 36.Kf1 Ne5 (or .. Qh3+ 37.Bg2 Qh5 38.Bxc6 .. etc) 37.Bg2 .. black is in a predicament. It's interesting (to know) if Capablanca would still have drawn this position."

  penarol: Just to say that in 1924 it was precisely Reti who had defeated Capablanca in the NY tournament. I think I heard that Capa had not resigned since 1916...
Feb-18-13  ColdSong: A very interesting game to better understand the possible handlings of this kind of "hypermodern" pawns structure.Capa,in my opinion,has certainly very well felt its soundness and the danger in which he was to be beaten for a second time bye the hungarian/czech master.
