Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-18  Retireborn: Seemingly the first encounter between these masters.

After 59.Kxe1 the ending looks dodgy for Capa with all his pawns on light squares, and indeed he immediately goes wrong with 59...Nc3; but Chajes misses his best chance with 61.Be6, when 61.Bc8 would have kept winning chances.

After 61.Be6 Na2! 62.f5 Nxb4 63.f6 Kd6 64.f7 Ke7 it seems that White can't win, and after 62.e4 as played the pawn ending is a fairly obvious draw.

A safe drawing method for Black is 59...Ng3 60.Bc8 h6 61.Bxa6 Nh5 and after ...Ng7 the white bishop can never escape the cage.
