Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-03  JustAFish: This game has a really nice exchange sac leading to an overwhelming pawn storm right down the middle.
Mar-26-03  ughaibu: Imagine if you had the chance to play Capablanca, would you play in this spiritless fashion hoping to get a draw? or would you try to knock him off the board? I dont understand what white would have felt he'd acheived by drawing in such a dull manner, of course he lost, as almost anyone would against Capablanca, so he might as well have given it his best shot, the result couldn't have been worse.
Jan-15-04  Lawrence: Merenyi got 4 draws--including one against Spielmann--and 0 wins at Budapest 1928, and came last. For such an outclassed player I think a draw against Capa would have been a feather in his cap. Could have dined out on it for years.

  sleepyirv: Capa's king moves seem to be mocking White for his passive position. Two rooks, two knights, a bishop, and none of them could do anything about one little brave king.
May-15-10  jmay: thought the knight move by merenyi was pretty, even if it was ineffectual. useful idea.

  perfidious: A virtuoso performance by Capablanca, as he accreted small advantages and traded one for another in classic fashion.

  Fusilli: <perfidious> Indeed.

Tempting is 32...Kc3, but Capa stays focused on the goal of getting the passed connected pawns.

  louispaulsen88888888: 13.Be3?! Is too straightforward. White should look to exploit the enemy king position. Nd2 seems logical, with the idea of Nc4.
