  3. The Monticelli Trap
    The interest of this trap - an excellent device in the Bogo-Indian ( or transposed Queen's Indian) which wins the exchange for White - derives from the possibility for Black, with excellent and careful play, to draw. In a review of the database so far, only José Raúl Capablanca has been able to draw with Black. He did it twice; both were serious games of considerable career consequence. The focus of JRC's play is on the possibility of the Black queen and knight, in concert with the advance of one or more central Black pawns, to disrupt the security of the White king and attempts of White to marshal his major pieces. An endgame with the destruction of White's pawns or a draw by repetition is the goal. In the middle game play, it appears that Black has the smaller margin for error in attempts to draw, than White has to win.

    I welcome additional games and comment on the status of the Monticelli Trap.
