Hard to believe that a 99 year old game by the Great Capablanca has no comments! He did play a guy who has NO WON Games on record! This game stands by itself as a WINNING Tribute to CAPA on Playing a Brilliant Game! Two BISHOPS can BEAT a ROOK with enough PAWNS! AKK

  OrangeTulip: Well Jesty was a little hasty with his Rooks at the end. So not a postional victory. Anyway, nice to see a blitz game from the Cuban icon!
