Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-04  Bobak Zahmat: After quick simplification both sides had almost the same position, so a draw is fair end.
Jun-07-09  Gambit All: For two great players famous for their opposing styles, individual masterpieces, and fierce personal rivalry with each other - a combination that would seemingly lead to brilliant games full of attack lines; counter-combinations; and, late game surprise tactical forays that a spectator would anticipate but still be shocked to behold - Alekhine and Capablanca, dissapointingly, played very few exciting games against each other. Important games, but not classic or innovative ones.
