Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-19-17  Marmot PFL: In a probably winning position Capa misses that 24 dc4? allows Qc3! with double attack on Ra1 and g3.

25 Qe1? is another mistake as white could still draw with 25 Rg4 Rxg4 26 Qxg4 Qxa1 27 Qc8+.

Jun-08-18  wrap99: This is literally one of the probably less than a dozen games a world champ/former champ lost to a female player in history, including simuls. In fact, perhaps no world champ ever lost a game to a female in a non-simul although Kasparov probably would have lost to Polgar if the game had been played strictly by the rules. Not even sure that Polgar has not beaten a former world champ besides Kasparov.

  beatgiant: If I'm not mistaken, J. Polgar also has some wins against Smyslov, Karpov and Anand, and Z. Polgar has a win against Smyslov.

  ChessHigherCat: <TheFocus: Vera Menchik beat Max Euwe.>

Every night or only when she came home drunk?

Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: And Chiburdanidze had some wins against Smyslov, at least. So, <wrap99> will have to update the estimate.
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: And Yifan Hou has some wins against Kramnik, maybe not standard time controls but definitely not simuls.
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: And Kosteniuk has wins against Karpov (standard) and Kramnik, Anand and Carlsen (blitz). I'm not going to post any more examples.
Jun-09-18  JimNorCal: Did Capa have a reputation for sometimes letting ladies win or draw in simul games?

  MissScarlett: See Capablanca vs Lupe Requena, 1916 (kibitz #2)
Jun-09-18  JimNorCal: Thanks MissS!
Jun-10-18  wrap99: I figured things had changed about females beating world champs. And if Menchik beat Euwe, my statement was not even true years ago.
