Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-04  Lawrence: eval +3.56 (provided Black plays the best move, 38.....Kd7.) Should have played 37.....Kf7. (Junior 8)
Mar-12-13  Ulhumbrus: After 23...Qf8 Black's king's knight is overworked. If it has to cover the h7 square it cannot prevent the move 24 Nd7!

After 29...Qf8 the e6 pawn is overworked. If it has to defend the bishop on e6, it vannot stop the move Ne5-g6!

After 32...Qd7 the knight is tied to the defence of h7 and so cannot move in response to the attack 33 Be5!

I would like to know what Capa had in mind after 24...Qd6 as after 25.Nxb8 black can play simply 25...Nxf4. White Knight from b8 has no escape.

Yes, but it is just one check. I don't think that there is anything for black to be afraid of. After 24...Qd6 25.Nxb8 Nxf4 26.Bxf4 Qxf4 27.Nd7 Nxd7 28.Qh7+ Kf8 white must do something with hanging Knight on d2 and so he has probably nothing better than 29.Qd3 but here black with extra Pawn is clearly better.

Mar-14-13  JimNorCal: I am not a huge Capa fan...but after dialing in to the game about move 29 I watched him jerk Black around. Really deft, graceful and effortless...
Mar-15-13  Anderssen59: Capa's mating plan is lovely: 38.....,Qxd4+ 39.Kh2 Qd7 40. Qg8!! Rc8 41 Bxe8 Rxe8 42.Qxg7+ Kd8 43 Rd1!! Kc8 (.....,Qxd1. Qc7 mate) 44.Rc1+ Kd8 45.Qxf6+ Re7 46 Qf8+ Qe8 47 Qf4 Rb7 48.Bh4+ Kd7 49 Qd2+ mating next move.

Unfortunately, 29.Ne4 (diagram) just runs into a deadly counter 29...Rc1! with immediate collapse of white position.

Unfortunately, 29.Ne4 (diagram) just runs into a deadly counter 29...Rc1! with immediate collapse of white position. > This suggests that the move 24...Qd6 makes the check Qh7+ less effective, as it clears the flight square f8 for Black's king. The position warrants looking at further.

Jun-23-16  edubueno: 36...Ag8 should resist.
