Kibitzer's Corner
May-20-07  paladin at large: 42. f5 is an extraordinary way to protect the white king.

Here is Capa's comment on the finish: "Here black overstepped the time limit. His game is lost, since on 52..... Rb8 there follows 53. Nc3 Nxc3 54. bxc3, when the black pawns are halted, whereas the white rooks can invade the opponent's position." (From Winter, citing Russian sources.)

May-19-14  Whitehat1963: To my chess-blind eyes, this game looks very slick on Capablanca's part. It seems as though he is constantly playing effective offense and defense at the same time.
Oct-14-18  goser: Capablanca achieved a winning position due to his brilliant strategic play. However, he lost almost all of his advantage by 38. Kf2? (instead of 38. Nf5). After the White's move 43, Stockfish's score is just +0.30. White managed to win the ending relatively easy due to the Black's planless play. 46...Rh8? was the crucial point, though in principle even the final position is not utterly hopeless.
