|Aug-10-12|| ||Phony Benoni: OK, had to look this pun up. Looks like it's based on a saying of law Professor Kingsfield from the movie, "The Paper Chase"|
<You come in here with a skull full of mush and you leave thinking like a lawyer.>
Kingsfield was played by John Houseman.

|Aug-10-12|| ||Oceanlake: Should have been a game in My System; a6 was the cherry on top.|
|Aug-10-12|| ||HeMateMe: Way to go, Benoni. That was a subtle pun, most would not have remembered Kingsfield. Quite a good movie, and not a bad TV show, either.|
"They get good moves the old fashioned way--They EEAAARRRN them".
|Aug-10-12|| ||joe1137: Capa passed on 17. Nh6+ and 18. Nf7+ winning the exchange. He must have concluded the N was more useful than the land locked R on d8 in this position.|
|Aug-10-12|| ||psmith: <joe1137> 17. Nh6+ Kh8 18. Nf7+ Rxf7 and then?|
|Aug-10-12|| ||talisman: <saiprasad> welcome to chessgames...|
|Aug-10-12|| ||twin phoenix: I, too, thought this game reminded me of Nimzo and "his system." Capa was a great player! for those that think of him as an ending master only this is a great game that showed his more tactical side.|
|Aug-10-12|| ||Chessmensch: Black allowed a lot of weak squares for Capablanca to have his way with.|
|Aug-10-12|| ||kevin86: The rook will soon be won for nothing.
Rush Limbaugh and others have used the Houseman quote.
|Aug-10-12|| ||Moszkowski012273: 31....Qg7 looks horrible, why not Qf5?|
|Aug-10-12|| ||YoungEd: Even though Capablanca only played Bird's Opening rarely, he gets a dream position here. This game is a good example of why some players like 1. f4 so much--the attack almost plays itself--when it works, that is!|
