Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Is the patzer, playing white, really THE Capablanca?? He was (1) dead drunk, (2) having a date with a pretty German blonde in 5 minutes or (3) it wasn't Capa at all... You choose.

  keypusher: Well, he didn't drink...

  keypusher: I am sure someone can give us the story behind this game. Even a great player can get so caught up in his own threats (Nc7+) that he forgets about his opponent's threats. After 17...c4, rather than play 18 Nc7+ Qxc7 or shamefacedly retreat his queen and submit to the loss of the knight, he gave up the queen, hoping to make something of the strong position of his minor pieces. But he soon realized he was wasting his time...
Dec-08-08  thebribri8: Has none of you ever made a blunder? If any of you believes that great players don't make mistakes, just enter "blunders" into the game collection search.
Dec-08-08  blacksburg: i've made a blunder or two :)
Dec-08-08  vntraderus: i would've been pretty hesitant in taking that queen from capa. lol

  MissScarlett: I assume from the lax play and anonymity of the opponent that it's a simul (presumably the one played on October 26th), but confirmation is sought.

  maxi: Actually it was played while Capa was in a casual date with a pretty German blonde.
Nov-09-15  TheFocus: <a pretty German blonde>

Which is a lot better than going out with a petty German blonde. I guarantee.

  OhioChessFan: I can hang a piece against an opponent's piece a long move away, much as Capa did here, who apparently didn't physically see the Bishop alllllll the way over on h8. That's my best guess anyway, and about the only way I might have something Chessical in common with Capa.

  maxi: Did you have a bad experience along those lines, <TheFocus>?
