May-20-05  chess man: Nice play by Capablanca to trap the Rook.
May-20-05  paladin at large: An extraordinary game, of the kind you expect to see more from Capablanca than anyone else. White seems to have none the better of the opening, when white's king calmly walks over to the queenside to throttle black's attack. White is not even in a hurry, he has time for 23. h3. Interesting how the white king - with one move - controls either the open b or the open e file, as needed.

Black's determined but hapless rook invades the b file not once, but twice. The first retreat is with the loss of a pawn, the second with the loss of his life and the exchange.
