|Jan-07-04|| ||Whitehat1963: One of Capablanca's rare losses with white. Capa's on the attack throughout, then the tide turns suddenly. Where did he go wrong? |

|Jan-07-04|| ||Shadow 812: To Whitehat1963
In response to your question, this game
appears in a book titled "The Unknown Capablanca" by David Hooper and Dale Brandreth, published by Batsford books in 1974.
They say that 28. c4? is weak because it weakens the d3 square and that Nc4! was stronger.
They also go onto say that Capablanca's
35th move Rxd3?? was probably the move that lost the game, and suggest this possible line instead:
35. Qd4 Re2
36. Qxd3 Re1
37. Rxe1 Qxe1+
with fair drawing chances
However this analysis really needs to be tested further.
|Dec-20-04|| ||Whitehat1963: One of Capa's rare losses as white in a game that features the opening of the day. |
|Dec-06-05|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: And another major upset with the MacCutcheon Variation. What is it about this opening?|
|Feb-11-06|| ||Caplasker: 35 R X P
This position is most interesting. I lost here my last chance to win the game, and if that is true it would vindicate my judgment when, on move 28, I played P-B4. The student can find out what would happen if white plays Q-Q4! at once. I have gone over the following variations: 35 Q-Q4, RxKRP (of course if RxBP, P-Q8 wins); 36 QxQP! R-Q1; 37 Q-R6, K-Kt1 best (if Q-Q5ch; K-R1, K-Kt1; R-QKt1 wins; 38 QxBP and White will have at least a draw.

|Jul-28-06|| ||Knight13: Annotating this game, one of his rare losses, Capablanca claimed that 35. Qd4! Rxh2 (35...Rxc5? 36, d8=Q) 36. Qxd3! Rd8 37. Qa6 was very good for White. However, while this may well be the case in the event of 37...Qe4+ 38. Ka1 Kb8 39. Rb1 and 37...Kb8 38. Qxc6 when "White will have at least a draw" (Capablanca), 37...Qe6! leads to an odd position where it is difficult for either side to do very much, e.g. 38. g4 f5 or 38. Rd3 f5 39.

|Sep-15-06|| ||chancho: This game is one of fourteen illustrative games in Capa's book: "Chess Fundamentals."|
|Oct-10-07|| ||dorsnikov: znoskoborovsky isn't held in high esteem as far as chess masters go. yet he wasn't a bad player at all. anyone who can sit down across from capablanca, one on one, fair and square and beat him knows how to play a darn good game of chess. i'd like to have only half of znoskoborovsky's chess insight.|
|Jul-07-10|| ||RandomVisitor: 35.Qd4 Qe2 36.Qxd3 Rb2+ 37.Kc1 Rd8 white still has problems.|
|Jul-07-10|| ||RandomVisitor: 32...Rd8 or 33...Rd8 are good for black.|
|Jul-07-10|| ||RandomVisitor: 27.Qf2 f5 28.Qd4 Rc8 29.Rb3 Rc7 30.c4 is good for white.|

|Mar-30-11|| ||Eluveitie: dorsnikov: half? I've read his little book "how not to play chess" and it help me a lot in my chess career, he may not be that good as other masters like capa but he managed to be one of the russian grandmasters in his time isnt it enough?|
|Nov-01-11|| ||pmukerji: Instead of 26. dxc5 I think 26. Nxc6 would have been somewhat stronger...i.e. inserting the queen on the diagonal and bringing the rook in from below I think would've been killer. I think this variation might even be winning for white.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||pedro123: I wonder if Mr Eugene Aleksandrovich Znosko-Borovsky ever had to sign on.|
A bit of a shame that he didn't live long enough to play Mr Roman Yakovlevich Dzindzichashvili really.

Both Capablanca and Burgess got this one wrong. After 35. ♕d4 ♕e2 36. ♕xd3 ♖b2+ 37. ♔c1 ♖d8 38. ♕xe2 ♖xe2 it is Black who has a probable win; he is up an exchange for a pawn, has a ♖ on the 7th rank, and the d7 pawn will soon fall.
|Jul-23-13|| ||offramp: Who should we believe out of Capablanca and Ernie Cohen?|
|Jul-23-13|| ||morfishine: Hi <Eluveitie> I also read the book "How not to play chess" by Znosko-Borovsky. A very good little book. |
He also wrote a less well known book:
"How not to make chess puns"
|Jul-23-13|| ||FSR: Apparently this is a good opening to play in simuls: Steinitz vs McCutcheon, 1885.|
|Jul-23-13|| ||FSR: <pedro123: I wonder if Mr Eugene Aleksandrovich Znosko-Borovsky ever had to sign on.|

Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky and Dr. Jana Malypetrova Hartston Miles Bellin would also have been worthy adversaries.

|Jul-23-13|| ||Ratt Boy: I first saw this game almost 50 years ago, in Capa's excellent *Chess Fundamentals*. In a world where chessmasters tend so show off their crushing wins in their own books, Capa was classy enough to include a few of his rare losses.
Fischer did the same in his classic *My 60 Memorable Games*. He was a nut, but that book is great.|
