May-21-08  JJL: Doesn't 17. Rab1 win for White? Looks like Hans missed it. It may have been his once in a lifetime opportunity to beat Capa.

  whiteshark: How could Kmoch be able to resist in playing <35.Qxb6>, which seems to be simply winning ?

  Calli: Good point. Maybe a score problem? I would think 33...Bxa4 is better although White may win that variation too.
Mar-28-16  RookFile: I think Kmoch was afraid of Capa running the e pawn down the board.

  MissScarlett: I think Kmoch was just afraid of Capa.
Oct-24-18  machuelo: In case of 17. Rab1 Black has Nd7. Kmoch wrote: "...when I won Queen and a Pawn for Rock and a Bishop, an enemy passed Pawn called for caution". But most probably that position was winning for White.
