Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-30-05  paladin at large: 17. ....e6 might be considered a losing move, I suppose, but black's pieces have little scope - already. 20..... Re8 still loses the exchange to 21. Bd6.
Jun-30-05  THE pawn: I suppose the game ends because at move 25, capa is two pawns up.

  Gypsy: <THE pawn: I suppose the game ends because at move 25, capa is two pawns up.> Flohr is about to lose more material.
Dec-24-07  scholes: <paladin at large > Isn't the mistake 18 ..Nd7 ? Even after 19 Nxd5 black can play Nxe5 instead of exd5 to save the rook
Dec-24-07  CapablancaFan: Down an exchange, everything else being level, playing Capablanca? Flohr knew he could'nt win this.
Dec-24-07  mistreaver: i don't understand why flohr sacrificed i exchange?white was better anyway how could that be justified
Dec-24-07  CapablancaFan: <mistreaver: i don't understand why flohr sacrificed i exchange?white was better anyway how could that be justified> Actually, he didn't sacrafice the exchange sir, he had no choice but to lose (a) rook. After 20.Bc7 if 20...Re1 21.Bd6! and it is the king rook that is lost!
Dec-25-07  mistreaver: U mean 20 ... Re8. Thanks anyway
Dec-25-07  CapablancaFan: <mistreaver: U mean 20 ... Re8. Thanks anyway> Yes.
Dec-25-07  paladin at large: <scholes> After 19....Nxe5 20. Ne7+ wins a piece, I believe.
Mar-10-18  veerar: 15....Rad8,another case of the WRONG Rook?Was Nd7,better?
