Dec-08-02  refutor: is this a complete game score? can't black just play Qxd5?

  Sneaky: Maybe the problem was along this line 11 ...Qxd5 12. Bc4 Nb4 13.Qb3
Dec-23-03  Resignation Trap: This was Capa's shortest tournament win. Colle did indeed resign at move 11.
Feb-19-05  aw1988: Oops!
Feb-19-05  aw1988: The point is ...Qxd5 Bc4 followed by Qxe4 winning the knight.
Feb-19-05  Billage: Hah why did he even play ..e5?
I see no benefit for black.

  vonKrolock: <5...Ne4> A move launched by Nimzo himself in Bad Kissingen 1928 ( cf Rubinstein vs Nimzowitsch, 1928 ) Colle tried it in some others instances, his best effort being Araiza Munoz vs Colle, 1930

  vonKrolock: <Nimzo himself in Bad Kissingen 1928> More precisely, in this fighting 6th Round Game Tartakower vs Nimzowitsch, 1928 the Rubinstein vs Nimzo was played in the 8th Round

  Gypsy: If Black tries to stave off the disaster as long as he can, then 11...Qxd5 12.Bc4 Nb4 13.Qb3 Qd6 14.Bxf7 ... So, in a sence, the rook at e8 is the target -- kind of amusing.

  vonKrolock: <5..♘e4> The exchange in 'c3' followed by this disapeared (apparently) from the so called magistral practice; it can be tried also after <4.♕c2> etc - maybe not sound arguments enough to recomend
Dec-22-08  shintaro go: 11 moves wow.
Apr-18-10  bastiaan0740: Blunder by Colle :/
Apr-10-15  thejack: White gets two pieces for a rook after 11.-Bf5 12. dc6 Ng3 13.Qd1, but it may be a little early to resign.
Dec-12-17  Olsonist: Why is this game listed as a notable game in the variation?
