Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-01-05  RookFile: This is a really sharp, modern looking game. Bogo deserves credit for pulling out a draw here. Capa had beaten him 5 straight times before this game, and looked well on his way to #6.
Jun-27-06  ChessDude33: Capablanca missed 9. b4! If 9...Ncxe4 then 10. f3! traps the knights. Bogo thought he could get away with Nc5 without a5...and he did.
Jun-27-06  CapablancaFan: <ChessDude33><Capablanca missed 9. b4! If 9...Ncxe4 then 10. f3! traps the knights.> I think Capa was probably more concerned with his development than making black lose time retreating his knight after 9.b4. But all in all a good point you raise because if that move were made black would have to waste time (and a tempo) moving his knight.
Jun-19-16  edubueno: Capa was distracted at the start up of the Congress.
