|Sep-16-05|| ||Averageguy: <chancho> Do you know any other Capa game collections with this game in it? (Thanks for the time and help BTW)|
|Sep-16-05|| ||chancho: <Averageguy> Sorry, I don't know of another book with that game.Maybe someone else here has the info you seek.|
|Sep-17-05|| ||Averageguy: <Chancho> Thanks for the time and help. Info Appreciated. Anyone else here know of a Capa game collection with this game in it?|
|Sep-17-05|| ||capablancakarpov: <Averageguy> I have Caparro´s book in Spanish, and believe me, it really worths, my edition has 1196 capablanca games ( all the known games of his career ),the 584 official games played by capa ( 297 wins-251 draws-36 losses !!) and a lot of blitz and blinfold games. I have read that later editions had 12 more capablanca games found in old newspapers and magazines.The book includes interesting tables with capablanca´s tournament results and losses and has an index with all the games ordered both alphabeticaly and by Eco. The book has 300 pages and the games are annotated using the Chess base program.Here is a link to buy the book.|
|Sep-17-05|| ||Averageguy: <Capablancakarpov> Thank you very much! Out of interest, is it in descriptive or algebraic notation?|
|Sep-17-05|| ||capablancakarpov: By the way, the game score is incomplete.According to Rogelio Caparros, the game continued:|
22..Nd6 23.Qh8+ Kf7 24.Ne5+ Ke6 25.Qxa8 1-0
|Sep-17-05|| ||capablancakarpov: It´s algebraic notation, the same that Crafty uses.|
|Sep-17-05|| ||Averageguy: <capablancakarpov) Thanks again!! I shall get it when I can.|
|Dec-01-05|| ||Chopin: Capablanca playing like Paul Morphy here; great game!|
|Jun-22-06|| ||MindRotorVia: The strongest move is 22...e5(!), but White is easily winning in any case.
If 22...d8 then 23.h8+ f7 24.g7+ e6 25.f8+ d6 26.a3+
If 22...g5 (or others) then 23.h8+ f7 24.e5+ e6 (24...xe5 25.xe5) 25.xa8, but also 23.f6+ followed by 24.d5 is interesting.
A hidden gem from Capablanca, never seen this brilliance before.
|Oct-02-06|| ||Operation Mindcrime: A Capablanca classic - I once used it to silence a pal of mine who said Capablanca was a "boring" player.|
It also appears as an example of the superiority of Bishops over Knights in certain positions in Gerald Abrahams' "Teach Yourself Chess", a fun book if a little abstruse at times.
|Apr-25-07|| ||tatarch: 19.Rd7 might be my new favorite move ever.|
|Dec-23-07|| ||cn1ght: I've looked over this game twice, and I'm still simply blown away by everything after move 12. dxe5...
In all honesty I cannot see most current masters playing this accurately, aggressively, and astoundingly in their entire game, let alone in consecutive moves, blindfolded, and in 1912!|
|Mar-09-08|| ||MichAdams: According to Andy Soltis (Chess Lists), this is very likely a pre-arranged game. |
After move 18, he writes:
<Before giving the remaining moves it's important to raise the suspicions. Capablanca was no stranger to this position as he had played all of White's moves less than six months before (in a simultaneous game vs. H.E. Price, Birmingham, England, November 1911).
The repetition of the game so exactly and so soon is either an astonishing coincidence - or the tip-off that the second game was a fake. The first game ended quietly with 19.Nxf7, as pointed out by Britain's Bernard Cafferty. Some time after it was played the Cuban periodical gave the 1912 game with a more brilliant finish....
Incidentally, Capa himself never published this game, nor did he disown it.>
A companion game: Capablanca vs H Steiner, 1933
|Feb-04-09|| ||thebribri8: I must be missing something, but can someone explain the title of the game to me?|
|Feb-04-09|| ||sleepyirv: <thebribri8> "Pictures at an Exhibition" is a piano piece. This is an exhibition game- and that's all I got.|
|Feb-26-09|| ||tommy boy: Amazing play!!!|
|Sep-04-11|| ||maxi: So, sadly, Capablanca made a name for himself, with this game, as a blindfold player; but at what Price!|
|Sep-04-11|| ||chancho: The game mentioned by <MichAdams>|
Capablanca vs H E Price, 1911
|Jun-14-13|| ||Crystal2013: I didn't understand if both of them were blindfolded or just Capablanca was... please let me know... =) =) thanks in advance...|
|Jun-14-13|| ||TheFocus: According to Hooper's <The Unknown Capablanca>, only Capablanca was blindfolded.|
|Jun-14-13|| ||TheFocus: The game finished with 22...Nd6 23.Qh8+ Kf7 24.Ne5+ Ke6 25.Qxa8 1-0.|
I have submitted these moves to <CG>.
|Jun-15-13|| ||Crystal2013: <TheFocus> Thanks... =)|
|May-03-14|| ||OhioChessFan: <patzer2> yes, 20. Nxg6 is better. 20. Nc6 is also stronger where Black can lose his Queen or be mated in a couple moves.|
|Jan-04-18|| ||AlbertoDominguez: This game appears in:
Caparros' collection, game #175
Hooper's The Unknown Capablanca, Game #121
