Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-05-04  Lawrence: To double or not to double, that is the question. Some (many?) of us would have played 9.Bxf3 because of our dread of doubling pawns. Is there any rule of thumb to know when it's OK to double and when it's not?
Jan-05-04  aampl: looks like capa was going to lose tempo with blacks next move, so he took with the pawn instead. learned something new today.

  matey: If 9.Bxf3 then Ne5 and White will have to relent to doubled pawns anyway or lose the c pawn. But even if this was not the case, 9.exf3 still is good as the half open e file gives White's rooks scope. The rule of thumb is that in the endgame the doubled pawns are rather a liability but in the opening or middlegame the half open file they create can result in counterchances. Of course everything depends on the particular details of the position.
Jan-06-04  bumpmobile: Is there a brutal continuation, or is the idea of two passed pawns against Capablanca too terrible for even the stoutest of heart?
Jan-06-04  Benjamin Lau: Oftentimes, two pawns or more is considered a winning advantage. The fact that Tylor is playing Capa and the pawns are passed is just gravy.

  Mateo: 35.Qc4 was the accurate move, avoiding the trap. 35.Rxe6? Rxg2! 36.Kxg2 Rd2+, Black wins.

With the Queen on c4, White controls e2. 35...Rxg2+? doesn't work as after 36.Kxg2 Rd2+ 37.R1e2 is possible.

So e6 falls and White has an easy win then.

Aug-26-11  ssez222: I had been wondering that was a blunder and of course it is but barely anyone mentions it. 20. Qxa7 what happend if 20...Nc2. The game is practically over for white. Capablanca still is the best player of all time!!

Capa played 18.Rae1 (now corrected), not Rfe1, as discussed here:
