|Jun-14-09|| ||ounos: Oh, I see. The final comment on the game explains it. Lasker apparently was playing to win.|
|Jun-14-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: <In this game Lasker seemed to blindly follow a line known to theory which Capablanca 'knocked out' at the board.>|
Lasker never blindly followed anything. He was an independent thinker if ever there was one.
|Jun-14-09|| ||keypusher: Nice pun!|
|Jun-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: spectacular pun|
|Jun-14-09|| ||heizfeld: Capablanca sounds a bit like a dazzler to me if he speaks about a "plan" to move the bishop to a6.
How could he know all about the following 30 moves with better finish for him?
And , right, at move 21 already "the game was extremely difficult" for him.|
Show me the fights with early "weak" a6 ruling a game ;o)
|Jun-15-09|| ||kevin86: I think that Capa does preach-at least by his vast commentary library here as elsewhere.|
He was a GREAT player,one of the best ever--but his diplomacy leaves a lot to be desired.
|Jun-23-09|| ||Check It Out: After playing through the game, particularly looking for Capa's "preachy" tone, I didn't notice it. He mentions bad moves on both Lasker's and his part, and seems quite level with his comments, even if he did get the remaining time available for Lasker's final move wrong.|

Not quite sure what are you asking for. Here is Duras using the weak-a6/Ba6 strategy successfully three times in one tournament.
Duras vs Marshall, 1912
Duras vs Z Barasz, 1912
Duras vs Z von Balla, 1912
Pillsbury used the Ba6 stratagem already in Hastings, 1895.
Pillsbury vs J Mason, 1895
|Jun-23-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Capa used it with the colors reversed to take out Bogo (see his ...Ba3):|
Bogoljubov vs Capablanca, 1924
|Jun-23-09|| ||Gypsy: < ounos: Wow. Lasker should have claimed the draw immediately after 38. ...Kf8 ! Amazing he didn't. > |
Back then repetition draws were based on 3-fold duplication of moves, not of positions. Capablanca repeated only twice.
(Move is a <pair> of consecutive positions.)
|Sep-10-09|| ||Ulhumbrus: After 19 Rg1 if White's King is unable to reach safety, this may be worth much more than the exchange.|
|Jan-17-11|| ||Tigranny: What's wrong with 45.Kf8?|
|Jan-17-11|| ||pawn to QB4: <What's wrong with 45.Kf8?> he had to keep the queens on to have any chance. Now after 46.Qb8+ and 47.Qe5+ he's got a lost ending.|
|Jan-17-11|| ||pawn to QB4: looking again, more lost than I thought. 46...Kg7 47.Qh8+ wins the queen. 46...Ke7 47.Qe5+ Qxe5 48.Rxe5+ and the knight goes as well.|
|Jan-18-11|| ||Tigranny: Thanks pawn to QB4.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||Llawdogg: Poor Lasker. He defended well until he blundered badly. Ouch!|
|Apr-21-11|| ||Artemi: White's 14th move reminds me of the 6th game of the Fischer-Spassky World Championshio Match in 1972...|
|May-24-11|| ||madlydeeply: Aha! See the move nine comment! He busted an opening at the board....which is rare for him because he usually busts opening with home prep! See?? Machine my.... (censored).|
|May-24-11|| ||madlydeeply: This is a funny comment. <An ordinary player would never have thought of giving up the exchange in order to keep the initiative in this position>. I'm an ordinary player...in fact i'm "below average"... in fact i'm awful! And i find myself constantly saccing and exchange to keep initiative in order to draw! Pretty much every other blitz game i find myself in such desperate straights!|
|May-25-11|| ||madlydeeply: yeah, Paul Morphy and Adolph Andersson would have NEVER thought of saccing the exchange to save a lost game! good go md! jolly good if i may say so meself|
|Nov-26-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: This is really an excellent game.|
|Dec-19-12|| ||Conrad93: Madly, mindless play does not account for skill. Sacrificing material can be a detriment to your game. Please get an education and troll elsewhere.|
A normal player would not have taken the knight, because a normal player would assume that the bishop is needed for attacking chances.
|Nov-06-13|| ||PMcGuigan: Capablanca has the art of making chess look easy|
|Apr-03-14|| ||offramp: For a similar manoeuvre to Capablanca's 25.Rd1-d4, see 20.Rd1-d4 in Kashdan vs Reshevsky, 1942.|
|Jun-02-15|| ||Tomlinsky: Naroditsky provides, in my opinion, a far more accurate and objective annotation of this classic than Capa here...|
