Apr-25-06  yunis: is that berstein who opposed capa participation in Sansebastian 1911???he he he
Sep-12-07  patzerboy: On 10...Ne4, Black may have seen the flurry of exchanges which would follow, counting on the opposite color bishops and reduced material to hold the game, but he surely misjudged the resulting position: one which left White with a pawn steamroller on the queenside. You can be sure Capa saw it. I hope he remembered his manners and told Bernstein, "Thank you!"
Feb-23-08  Alphastar: <yunis> No, this is a different Bernstein. The Bernstein who opposed Capablanca's participation in San Sebastian 1911 is Ossip Bernstein.

  TheFocus: <Excellent! I will still be in time for the ballet!> - (upon defeating Ossip Bernstein in the famous 29 move exhibition game played in Moscow in 1914, before setting off to the Bolshoi Theatre in horse-drawn carriage) - Jose Capablanca.
Jun-06-15  1 2 3 4: <Phony Benoni> how's that even possible?

  Phony Benoni: <1 2 3 4> Early in his career, Capablanca did stuff like that. Granted that 29 moves in 17 minutes would be exceptionally fast, even for him.

  TheFocus: This is match game one of a two-game match. It was played in Moscow, Russia on February 4, 1914.

Capablanca won one game and drew the second.
