|May-13-06|| ||Far1ey: Nice sac at the end to get another passed pawn!!!
Rather dull opening though,......
|Aug-13-07|| ||Fusilli: <Lawrence: 40.Be1 Bb4 eval -5.43 (Junior 8)> I thought the best continuation against 40.Be1 was 40...Bb1. I think Black's threat is 40...Bb1 and (if White didn't obstruct his rooks with Be1) 41.Rxb1 axb1=Q 42.Rxb1 c2 43.Rc1 Ba3 winning. I don't see what White can do against that.|
|Jul-07-10|| ||GrahamClayton: 19.♖f3 is a mistake. 19.♖g1 planning g4 is better. Capablanca takes advantage of the blocking of the d1-h5 diagonal by 19.♖f3 to play 19...h5, permanently stopping g4, and freeing himself to play on the Queen side of the board.|
|Jul-30-10|| ||sevenseaman: Implacable Capa. His end games possess inexorable momentum.|
|Jul-30-10|| ||M.D. Wilson: This game didn't reach the endgame, it was over in the middlegame.|
|Aug-08-11|| ||xombie: This game is rather a beauty. I have some comments from Soltis' defense book. Apparently, the idea is to prevent white's counterplay, and Capablanca goes to some lengths doing this. This counterplay (rather, play) lies on the kingside, with a general advance of the g pawn, Rg1, etc. Capablanca's moves are designed to prevent these:|
19 ... h5 with restraint.
20 ... Rh6!! with even more restraint
The point behind 20 ... Rh6 is that the black king is sitting on the same line as the rook, so he cannot advance the pawns with h3 and g4.
This is a very interesting and useful device, an example of a mysterious rook move.
Once white's kingside chances are squelched, black's initiative comes into its own on the queenside. I believe, some of white's kingside overtures are criticized. Instead, is recommended, action on the queenside - of a defensive nature.
|Aug-08-11|| ||xombie: As a matter of fact, this whole preventive plan seems to have started with 14 ... Rf6. To that extent, it appears that Capablanca had seen the whole thing when he had gone in for 13 ... c4. Furthermore, the advance of the e pawn is prevented by the timely c5, so that black responds by kicking the B out of d3 from where it guards e4. |
This is a model game illustrating black's e4-control themes in the QID.
|Aug-06-13|| ||DougieChess: why was 22...Kf7 played?|
|May-29-15|| ||GrahamClayton: <DougieChess>why was 22...♔f7 played?|
I think Capablanca played 22...♔f7 so that he could re-route the rook on h6 back across to the Queen side via h8.
|Sep-23-17|| ||paulthebox: This game is also in Nimzovich' Mein System (diag. 154). Claerly 29. Qe1 is as sign of things gone wrong. Nimzovich gives "29. Bf6 Be7", but after the double exhange on e7 I don't think black can win due to his very bad bishop, eg. 30. Bxe7 Qxe7 31. Qxe7+ Kxe7 32. Rhf3 Rb8 33. R3f2 a4 34. cxb4 Rxb4 35. a3 Rb6 36. Rd2 Rfb8 37. Rff2 and there is no way forward.|
|Jul-11-18|| ||BAJones: Will someone please tell me why 35.Rc2 does not work?|
|Jul-11-18|| ||Howard: Offhand, Black can just swap queens on e1. After that, he can play one of his rooks to c8, and then from there plant that rook on c3. |
In other words, playing 35.Rc2 probably just ends up yielding the c-file to Black.
