  Marmot PFL: If white marks time black just moves his king up the a file to b3, trades all the pieces and wins the queenside pawns.

White's last chance to draw was 47.Kf1 Rxf2+ 48.Rxf2 Bxf2 49.Kxf2 Rxb2+ 50.Re2 Rb3 51.Re5.

  ToTheDeath: Lovely game by Capablanca, in particular the creative doubling of the rooks on the b file.
May-20-17  nummerzwei: A lesser known Capablanca win in the spirit of
Janowski vs Capablanca, 1916.
