  keypusher: Sort of a prehistoric hedgehog at move 34.
Mar-29-06  EricCartman: This game is so instructive, Capa plays so easy and slowly puts on some pressure and wins
Oct-30-06  Castle In The Sky: What's really great about this game is how Capa uses his queen and rook to provoke white into creating kingside pawn weaknesses. See 21...Qg5 22.h4 and 25...Re5 26. f4
Mar-01-14  WhoKeres: Capa's play reminds me of Petrosian in this game. Lots of cat and mouse maneuvering leading to a won endgame primarily due to white's doubled b pawns. A beautiful example of patient exploitation of small advantages by Capa.
