|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...|
|Aug-23-16|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Hard to get, even for Capa and SF7, but 34. Rf5 is indeed the best move. Behind the board Capa showed excellent intuition. In fact his intuition sometimes troubled his skills so that he couldn't find the right continuation afterwards. Most peculiar.|
|Nov-21-16|| ||chessrookstwo: Give it up for capa the man had the invite for chess|
|Dec-20-17|| ||FSR: Seirawan analyzes this game at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZGmJ... He completely disagrees with the notion that Capablanca refuted Lasker's opening play, and points out a number of improvements for Lasker that likely would have changed the result of this critical game in the match, the first decisive result after four draws.|
|Dec-20-17|| ||FSR: Naroditsky rejects 31...h6, since after 32.h5 Lasker's king would have been "stuck forever." Any strong player is extremely reluctant to defend such a situation. But Seirawan says that neither he nor his engine (which gives White a huge plus) can figure out how to break down Black's fortress!|
|Dec-20-17|| ||RookFile: Yeah, Lasker's opening play seems terrific. It stands to reason that if one or two screws was tightened up black would do well here. Anything beats playing a stodgy defense typical of the Queen's gambit.|
|Dec-22-17|| ||lost in space: I have the impression that 16...Bxf3 was a mistake.|
I can not see how white has a chance to win after 16...cxd4 taking advantage of the uncastled white king - or in general the lack of development of the white pieces.

In fact my silicon monster sees a huge advantage for Black after 16...cxd4. But after 16...Bxf3 a big advantage white. So the brave 16...Bxf3 was a blunder?!
|Dec-22-17|| ||Olavi: <lost in space:>|
Normally the variation 17.Rxc8 Rxc8 18. 0-0 is given, with clear advantage (18...Bxa6 19.Qxa6 Rc2 20.Qa4). What does the monster see?
|Dec-22-17|| ||offramp: This is a great game right the way through, except for Lasker's error at the end. It is high tension stuff... One or two slightly wrong moves and the opponent will be on top.|
|Dec-23-17|| ||lost in space: <<Olavi>: <lost in space:>

I made a mistake. When adding the position into the comp I forgot to give white the right to castle. And that explains the advantage for black. Sorry for my mistake.
With the right to castle also my comp agrees that white has significant advantage (+1,22) after 16...cxd4
|Dec-23-17|| ||RookFile: It appears black could have played 11.....Nxd5 12. Qxd5 Bb7 13. Bxe7 Qxe7 14. Qg5 Qxg5 15. Nxg5 cxd4 15. exd4 Nf6 with equality. White is nominally a pawn ahead but lags in development. I think a guy like Marshall might have tried this, it seems like his style.|
|Dec-24-17|| ||Dionysius1: Just occurred to me the point of Capablanca's note to Lasker's 45th move makes sense because the match terms agreed they would play at 15 moves per hour so this would have been Lasker's last move before a time control.|
