|Oct-15-05|| ||AlexanderMorphy: good notes by the great Capablanca!|
|Oct-19-06|| ||Dres1: <good notes> i dont understand the note that if c4, of course Ne3... also he maybe should mention that on move 7... black is forced to give up the center with exd4 as 7...0-0 would lose by force.|
|Dec-12-07|| ||nolanryan: As Capablanca mentions, 15 b3 is not necessary- something like Rae1 is possible (15 .. Qxb2? 16 Rb1 Qa3 17. Nd5). Obvious to him, but it took me a while to figure out|
|Mar-02-08|| ||Knight13: Capa could've played c4 in many positions if he wanted to set it up but didn't.|
|Mar-08-11|| ||titoramia: Nolanryan: I still dont understand 17.Nd5|
|Mar-08-11|| ||Sastre: After 15.Rae1 Qxb2 16.Rb1 Qa3, 17.Nd5 wins the exchange (17...Qxd3 18.Nxe7+ Kf8 19.Rxd3 Kxe7).|
|Mar-08-11|| ||shalgo: <i dont understand the note that if c4, of course Ne3>|
The point is that if 37...c4 38.Ne3 threatens Nxc4 and if 38...cxb3 39.cxb3 then Black can't play 39...Rxb3 because the bishop would be hanging.
|Mar-08-11|| ||shalgo: Capablanca's annotations are a little strange, as he keeps noting good moves by Black and mistakes by White, but the game ends in a draw. It left me wondering where Black missed his chance.|
So I looked at Khalifman's annotations of this game. He suggests that 43...c4! 44.a5 cxb3 45.cxb3 Rc8, intending ...Be6, would have given Black an edge--not a winning edge, but something to play for.
|Nov-26-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: This could pass for a Kramnik game with black, very solid.|
|Nov-10-12|| ||ColdSong: A nice game indeed,the great cuban seems to prove for a long time that the knight is somewhat better than the bishop in this kind of position.35.a4 puzzled me a lot: was that move increasing an edge or just weakening?|
