|Apr-24-07|| ||zb2cr: A fun little puzzle. I saw it in perhaps 15 seconds. The double check that results after capture on g7 was the key. |
Who was it that said: "The laziest King flees wildly in the face of a double check"?
|Apr-24-07|| ||Chess Classics: This one gave me a minutes pause. I looked briefly at 28. Qxg8 for about a minute...|
|Apr-24-07|| ||ruzon: Why did Black play 12. ... Be7 instead of 12. ... a5? That seemed to be the moment where he gave up attacking and let Capablanca start being brilliant again. The Knight pin can be released with Qd6.|
|Apr-24-07|| ||zb2cr: <ruzon>,
I think he was planning the maneuver ... Nc5 - Ne6. Black's position isn't particularly bad after his 14th move. To me, the move 15. ... g6 looks like a bad plan, as it makes White's Pawn assault go much faster. Perhaps Black's 15th is when he should have applied your suggested ... a5?
|Apr-24-07|| ||concreteengineer: Got this one quickly, but I agree with nimzoknight - I would not have seen it OTB - nor would I have made it to move 28 in this position. I like the puzzles based on the older games as they usually play out to mate or close enough that you can clearly see the end. With some of the newer games they resign so early that you have to be a GM (or have a computer program) to see what the likely end is. That makes it hard on us less skilled players who are trying to learn.|
|Apr-24-07|| ||THE pawn: I saw it instantly. I'm still shocked at how hard the last sunday was, though. (even if I have it in my collection)|
|Apr-24-07|| ||kapabl: <pggarner: How about 28.Ng7 followed by 29.Qf5 and 30.Qh7#, which is also mate in 3?> |
Not quite. Black is not forced to capture the knight. He can play anything else, lets say, 28...Qa5 and 29...b4. Now 30.Qh7+ doesn't work. Since the pawn is still on h6, Black can play 30...Kxh7.
As <ccolby> pointed out, 28.Qg7+ forces Black to do something about it and White can recapture and open the h-file.
|Apr-24-07|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: <twin phoenix: (22. RXh5) it is clearly winning. computers still have a lil catching up to do in matters of positional sacks and this is a prime example. funny that 2 different comp programs rate it as 'bad' when it pays off according to <JG27pyth> it wins in 10 moves>|
Deeper (21-ply) analysis by HIARCS indicates that 22. Rxh5 does give some advantage to white (+1.2 or so), but 22.Ng2 also takes care of the inconvenient knight on f4, and wins easily (+4.5 or so). So, the move is good, but not the best.
|Apr-25-07|| ||twin phoenix: tks <mostlyaveragejoe> the N-g2 line does look very strong. think it's safe to say that black was just plain in trouble here. (a freshly opened can o corn!) guess i'm just old fashioned cuz i woulda played the exchange sack in a heart beat. it just fits into what i find aesthetically pleasing in chess... tks for the analysis tho. who said; "once you find a good move look for another one, there may be an even stronger move in the position."? advice that certainly fits here.|
|Apr-25-07|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: <twin phoenix: who said ... ? >|
"When you see a good move, look for a better one" is generally attributed to E. Lasker.
|Apr-25-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Capa is well-known for his end game prowess. But here he launches a furious attack on the Black's castled king which is a delicacy to relish.|
|Apr-26-07|| ||Fisheremon: It was a surprise from Capa that he denied the simple 22.Ng2 and went to an unclear sac 22.Rxh5, cos' 23...Qd6!? (instead of 23...Rae8??) seemed defendable.|
|Sep-15-14|| ||talwnbe4: 23.. Qb6 pinning the e3 knight to the undefended white rook is what gives black a reasonable defense. 22. Ng2 Stockfish gives it 6.0, i.e
22. Ng2 Ng6 23. Qxh5 h6 24. Ne3 Qd7 25. Ng4 Qe6 26. Nxh6 Nf4 27. Qf3 Bxh6 28. Rxh6+ 10.0|
|Jun-10-15|| ||TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri on December 8, 1909.|
Capablanca scored +21=1-1.
|Apr-01-17|| ||MissScarlett: <Got Carter>|
|Feb-06-19|| ||andrewjsacks: Simul or not, who would have guessed Capa played this game.|
|Feb-06-19|| ||OrangeTulip: Good pun!|
|Feb-06-19|| ||wtpy: Not sure it is a pun, just a different Carter. Question is which movie: Knowing Ms. Scarlett's unassailable taste I am guessing the Michael Caine one, which is rated highly by Bafta as I recall, and was excellent, rather than the Stallone version, which I haven't seen, but presume is not as good.|
|Feb-06-19|| ||The Kings Domain: Nice buildup to victory by the young Capablanca.|
|Feb-06-19|| ||MissScarlett: <Got Carter
<Miss Scarlett is the stock character of a femme fatale. She is typically portrayed as young, cunning, and highly attractive. She was known as Miss Scarlet in the North American version after 1963. She rolls first in the game.>

Capablanca vs A Chase, 1922
|Feb-06-19|| ||ChessHigherCat: 20...Nxd3?? 21. Bxd3 Qxd3 22. Rd1 Qxd1 wins N+Q for pawn+R|
|Feb-06-19|| ||Korora: 28. ♕g7+ and Black was faced with the dolorous choice between the text and 28. ... ♗xg7 29. hxg7#.|
|Feb-06-19|| ||ajk68: So this is what happens when you let Capablanca set up an attack against you without any counter-play...incredibly passive play by black.|
|Feb-06-19|| ||Patzer Natmas: I just analyzed the game with my mind and saw that black's only chance of survival was 17...bxg5 followed by 18...nxg5.|
