|Feb-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Does 9...0-0 qualify as "castling into it"?|
|Feb-19-06|| ||CowardlyKnight: I don't think so because there's no mating threat in sight at that point.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||CowardlyKnight: This game was played in São Paulo, Brazil, by the way. Chessbase has it listed as a "casual game" though, maybe it's just a offhand game played at a club.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Except that white has queen on h5, knight on d4, and bishops on d3 and e3. Looks like white has everything lined up for a kingside attack...|
Of course the black king can't stay in the center and castling queenside would take time plus would leave some big holes, and the opponent is one of the best players the world had yet seen, so as they say these days, "It's all bad."
|Feb-19-06|| ||RookFile: I don't think so, because black could have defended better. Possibilities include 11... Qh4, inviting a queen
trade, answering 12. Qe2 with ...Nf4.
So what would play 12. Qf3, probably,
but then 12..... Nc6 happens, with the
idea of 12..... Ne5 after the bishop retreat.
I don't know whether white would win
anyway in these lines, with Capablanca winning the endgame, but at least black wouldn't get crushed in the early middlegame.
Also interesting is the immediate 11... Nf4, with the idea of swapping off the monster on d3.
|Feb-19-06|| ||CowardlyKnight: True but black's night at g6 seems to solidify his king's position. It's only after 12... e5 that black looks completely lost.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Rookfile: Good points all.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||CapablancaFan: 10...Bxd4 was a bad exchange for black, giving Capa both bishops resulting in open diagnols and the set up for the eventual queen sacrafice. If I had to point to the one move that changed the course of the game it would be black's move 10...Bxd4.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||Calli: Capa commented that his sacrifice 17.Qxg6? was "premature". Can you see why and the defense that Black missed?|
Another Sunday quiz! :-O
|Feb-19-06|| ||CowardlyKnight: Wow, you're right! A rare miscalculation by the machine: 17. Qxg6? hxg6 <17... fxg5? 18. R1d3> 18. R6d3 d5! 19. Nxd5 <if 19. exd5 Na5> 19... Rxd5 20. Bxd5 Bc8 and white is done.|
Oh well, at least I got something from it: Don't trust GMs, try to prove them wrong.
|Feb-19-06|| ||CowardlyKnight: Well, it was a casual game so we have to give Capa a break.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||CapablancaFan: <CowardlyKnight> You're right it was a simul. game so no big woop. Can't hold it to the same standards as a tournament game.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||Calli: <CowardlyKnight> Correct. Black can defend with 18...d5! The CG scorecard is right. This was a simul in Sao Paulo. Capablanca scored 21 wins 0 loses and allowed 2 draws.|
|Oct-04-07|| ||chancho: This game continued 23...Rxe8 24.Rxd7+ Kf8 25.Rxf7+ 1-0 (according to Rogelio Capparos book on Capablanca) And the opponents name was A Campos Souza.|
|Feb-23-10|| ||hstevens129: 18...d5 is a good find for Black. Seems to solve his problems. Can anyone figure out a way around it for White?|
|Nov-01-10|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: I like too much this combination !!|
|Mar-07-11|| ||Antiochus: A Souza Campos simul at Sao Paulo city|
|Apr-05-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Somebody asked to Capablanca How many moves can you see in advance? he said ONE ! but he lied, in this game saw ten in advance !!|
|May-31-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: GOTD: Simultaneous Combustion
Capablanca vs S Campos, 1927.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF CAPABLANCA.
Your score: 35 (par = 34)
PS. "23. ?" White to play and win, would make an excellent Tuesday puzzle.
|May-31-12|| ||NM JRousselle: As Steinitz once said, "To win with a flawed combination, however showy, fills me with artistic horror".|
|May-31-12|| ||AylerKupp: Reminds me of a joke:
A chess master died. After a few days, a friend of his heard a voice. It was him!
“What’s it like where you are now?”, asked the chess master’s friend.
“What do you want to hear first, the good news or the bad?”, replied the chess master.
“The good.”, the friend said.
“Well, it’s really heaven here.” said the chess master. “There are tournaments and blitz sessions going on all the time. And Morphy, Alehine, Lasker, Tal, Capablanca, Botvinnik, Fischer, they’re all here, and you can play them.”
“Fantastic!” the friend says. “And what is the bad news?”
“You have black against Capablanca on Saturday”.
|May-31-12|| ||DanielBryant: Perhaps Black had been counting on 15...Nd4, which ends up giving White some pleasant options.|
|May-31-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <AylerKupp> That's an awesome joke!|
|Jun-02-12|| ||AylerKupp: One good joker deserves another. :-)|
