|Feb-25-12|| ||RookFile: White deserves a dope slap for 16. f4, but Capa played with his usual ruthless precision in converting the win. Notice how he avoided the cute stalemate trap on move 50.|
|Feb-17-13|| ||prithviraj: white is completely hopeless...he couldn't even do simple calculations|
|Feb-17-13|| ||JimNorCal: Newell Banks was the world champ of checkers/draughts, right?
Too much to expect him to hold against Capa.|
|Apr-12-17|| ||maxi: We have here a blunder by Capa in the endgame, a seldom seen occurrence. When playing his 47th move, Capa could have played the obvious 47...b3, which forces an immediate resignation. But instead he made a weak move, 47...Rxg7, based on the idea that 48.Rxa2 Rg3+ wins the White Rook, true, but it is also stalemate. Since he had a a two-pawn advantage he still could easily win. As Alekhine noticed years later, Capa was a bit over-complacent.|
|Apr-12-17|| ||TheFocus: Perhaps Capa was short of time.|
|Apr-12-17|| ||maxi: Perhaps, but being the 47th move, it is unlikely.|
