|Sep-07-05|| ||DoctorChess: Bf3!!! Brilliant!|
|Oct-18-05|| ||Runemaster: Yes, a remarkable win so quickly as Black against such a strong opponent. But that's Capablanca.|
|May-09-06|| ||ArturoRivera: Junior 8 in 10 minutes aint better than Capablanca in two hours|
|May-09-06|| ||CapablancaFan: Capa ends this thing in 18 moves...and he's black!|
|Jul-11-07|| ||Fast Gun: Reti gets steam rollered in only 18 moves !! I wonder why he played 1.e4 against Capablanca in this game, when you consider the success that had against Capablanca in 1924?|
|Jan-24-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Capablanca seems to be on the defensive the entire time, then bam! And it's all over!|
|May-13-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Tueday/Wednesday puzzle after 17. Qd1.|
|May-18-08|| ||JimmyVermeer: Fast Gun, I wouldn't blame Réti's loss on his first move. His 10th, 14th, and 18th moves were much worse.|
The game might have continued:
18 gxf3? Qh3 19 Qd5 c6 20 Qe6+ Qxe6 21 Nd2 Qh3 22 Bg7 Rg8 23 Kh1 Nxf3 24 Nxf3 Qxf3+ 25 Kg1 Rxg7#
Réti's 18th move should have been Nd2 (or Bg7 or Kh1 or Qxf3), though in either case he still would have lost.
|May-20-08|| ||Whitehat1963: <JimmyVermeer> I'm sure your suggestion of 19. Qd5 would have gone more like this: 18. gxf3 Qh3 19. Qd5 Nxf3+ 0-1 (20. Qxf3 Qxf3 with mate to follow shortly or worse: 20. Kh1 Qxh2#)|
|May-24-08|| ||JimmyVermeer: <Whitehat1963>, your way is good, but my way is 3 moves faster. Yours leads to 19 Qd5 Nxf3+ 20 Qxf3 Qxf3 21 Re1 Rg8+ 22 Bg7 Rxg7+ 23 Kf1 Rg2 24 Re2 Rxh2 25 Ke1 Rh1+ 26 Kd2 Qd5+ 27 Ke3 Rh3+ 28 f3 Rxf3#|
|May-25-08|| ||Whitehat1963: <Crafty>, what's the best continuation after 19. Qd5?|
|Dec-05-08|| ||andymac: <Whitehat1963>, I saw that too, and thought I was brilliant for about 15 seconds, until I saw 19. ... Nxf3#! which mates (20. Kh1 Qxh2#) or wins the Queen after 20. Qxf3 Qxf3.|
|Dec-05-08|| ||tommy boy: Not only 19...Nxf3 but 19...Rg8+|
|Dec-07-08|| ||andymac: <tommy boy>, not 19...Rg8+ as 20. Qxg8+!|
|Dec-08-08|| ||tommy boy: Andymac, thanks, I missed that|
|Dec-08-08|| ||Wolfgang01: „Quick and dirty“. A quickie by José!! Great game.|

|Aug-02-10|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I was studying tonight at the "Books-A-Million," with my student, John Laning. |
<We were studying the book, <<"Capablanca's Best Chess Endings,"> by <Irving Chernev.>>> One of the games that we went over was game # 45, (page # 194) A Steiner vs Capablanca, 1928.
The above game, (Reti - Capa; Berlin, 1928); was given as a note to the Steiner vs. Capa game. (See the note after White's sixth move, page # 194 of the aforementioned book, see http://www.amazon.com/Capablancas-B....)
All this activity got my brain to itching. Seems like I have annotated this game (Reti - Capa; Berlin, 1928) somewhere before. I looked with GOOGLE, but I did not find anything ... however, I was sure that I had done this game at least once ... ... ...
This lead to over an hour of searching ... and the following happy discovery: http://www.lifemasteraj.com/old_af-....
I am off now to update this page ...
|Mar-18-11|| ||DominicS: Moves like 12..bxa4 are why I will never be a rated player and why I love Capablanca's style so much. lol. 12..fxg5 or even the passive 12..Bd7 would have been moves I would have considered instead. Just an impressive win against such a strong player by a World Champion. Nice. :)|
|Dec-26-11|| ||asiduodiego: In hindsight, of course 10. Qxd4? , is a blunder, but it leads to a complicated game. Black needs to play carefully to avoid getting in trouble. For example, if Black is careless and instead of capturing the light bishop, plays: 12. ..., fxg5?? 13. Bb3!, Tf8 14. Qxc6+, Bd7 15 Qe4, and White has regained his material back, and Black is in huge problems. So, even if Qxd4 was a bad move, it's not immediately easy to refute.|
But, of course, he was playing against Capablanca...
|Sep-09-12|| ||Garech: 5...f5; very interesting! Has this approach been refuted with the passage of time? Cheers, |
|Sep-09-12|| ||refutor: <garech...refuted with passage of time> i would say no...it's not as popular as some other ruy lopez lines, but as recently as 2001 was played in a game between two top guys Tiviakov vs Piket, 2001 |
may not be completely sound (if god was playing god white *may* win) :), but a fun opening to play!
|Apr-05-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This game/line is similar to the Schliemann Defense.|
|Apr-05-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Of course - I have a web page on this game, the link was given earlier.|
|Apr-27-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.lifemasteraj.com/old_af-...|
I just spent several hours re-doing this page.
