Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-02-08  Knight13: It's already a draw on move 14.
Aug-29-09  WhiteRook48: how come Alekhine always played the Rubinstein attack here?
Feb-26-12  The Curious Emblem: Instead of 9... h6, 9... Re8 followed by ... Nf8-g6 is better.
Feb-26-12  RookFile: Is it indeed? It's not like Capa didn't know about that plan. White might play for the Ne5 and f4 setup. Then, left unchecked, white could get a menacing attack with Bxf6 and g4 and g5. Notice how in the game, with ....Nh5, black smoothly eliminated this latter possibility.
Feb-27-12  The Curious Emblem: <RookFile> I see what you mean. Ex. 9... Re8 10. Bd3 dxc4 11. Bxc4 Nf8 12. Ne5 Ng6 13. f4 Nxe5 14. fxe5 Nd5 15. Bxe7 Qxe7 16. e4 and Black is on the defensive. Thanks for pointing it out.

  WorstPlayerEver: It's noticeable that both matadors avoid a real battle. For instance:

17. Rfe1 Nf6 18. Nf4 g5 19. Ne2 Nfe4 20. Rf1 f6 21. Nh2 f5 22. Nf3 Nf7 23. Ng3 a5 24. Nh5 Qd6 25. Be2 Qg6 26. Ne1 Bd7 27. Nd3 b6 28. Rfd1
