  Honza Cervenka: Capa won a Pawn in the opening and later he transformed it in a winning attack in endgame. Marshall's 10...h6 looks like a mistake. Maybe 10...Nc6 occurred in Samisch vs Reti, 1927 or 10...Qc7 unpinning the Knight would have been better.

  Honza Cervenka: Well, 11...Nc6 instead of 11...Bxd5 was possible too.
Jun-12-06  RookFile: Once Capa played 22. e4, the game was over. Karpov won a lot of games with this sort of bind.
Jun-23-16  edubueno: Brilliant and easy, that was Capa!
Sep-09-16  Dave12: Capa trades Rooks in move 28, recognizes that this ending is hopeless for black. nice little trick with 41.Ne4. after Bxh2 Kh5 the threat is f6+ and mate. now the king cannot escape
