I haven't played in tournaments in many years due to my time-demanding job, but I am fairly strong and carefully follow the world chess scene.

   Dec-16-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
maxi: <Johnnysaysthankyou> I agree with you, but I have a comment. While it is true that Capa sometimes laid subtle positional traps (as often did Petrosian, too), Capa felt himself so strong that sometimes he made moves he knew were too aggressive and dangerous, trusting his ability ...
   Dec-09-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
maxi: The complexity of the endgame after 39.KxB is mind-boggling. There are so many tactics! No wonder two geniuses like Capa and Alehine had so much trouble with it OTB.
   Dec-09-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
maxi: I absolutely love it. AlphaZero sacs a meager pawn and is one bishop up by move 18. It is practically impossible to activate black's white square bishop. Capablanca would have been proud!
   Dec-06-17 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921 (replies)
maxi: <Conrad93> Really you shouldn't use "biased" in relation to Capa's comments. You can say that he had a very high opinion of his own ability, you can say that sometimes he made analytic mistakes, but you shouldn't use that word. Capa was as objective as he could be as far as chess

maxi: <visayanbraindoctor> Thank you for your invitation. I am honored. I will read the thread in a few days.
   Nov-29-17 A Schwarz vs Bird, 1873 (replies)
maxi: Very interesting solution. The rook make a breach in the wall (removes the g6 pawn) and has to retreat because of the queen check. What makes it hard to find the finish is to see that the queen cannot maintain the check and the rook is free to go on its way.

   Nov-21-17 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
maxi: It has been commented somewhere in CG that during the Olympiad the Argentinians were interested in organizing another World Championship Match between Capablanca and Alekhine, but the latter refused on the grounds that he had to go back to France and enlist in the French army. (The ...
   Nov-20-17 L R Eisenberg vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
maxi: Capa won in spite of being lost. (At least he looks lost to me.)
