|Aug-30-07|| ||paladin at large: No, it is not a typical Capa game. Whatever the mix of calculation and intuition, Capa could see that he quickly gains two minor pieces and a pawn for his queen, plus excellent position.|
|Dec-30-08|| ||Garech: Well everyone, whatever way you look at it, it was a great game from Capablanca ... I don't think many people would have given up the queen in that situation, it's a credit to his massive skill that he did ... I really think this should be a game of the day in the future.|
|Dec-30-08|| ||sleepyirv: <Garech> It certainly has good pun potential.|
|Jan-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: great way how White Chases the Queen|
|Mar-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he was Chased!!|
|May-19-10|| ||mhelshou: I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that 22. Bf3 was a bad mistake that Black could have exploited to his advantage but didn't.|
|Sep-27-11|| ||DrMAL: I don't play King's Gambit real often but this game has a fascinating opening. 9.Nd2 allows 9...Bg4 to force 10.Nxe4 but it's an excellent move. The counter-sac 11...Qxf6 was better than 11...Ke7 after this move Cappy has all the fun. Difficult to believe this was a simul game his intuition was amazingly fast!|
|Sep-28-11|| ||SChesshevsky: This was a fascinating opening.
Do you think Capablanca had seen this line before? It seems pretty aggressive to judge the two Bishops, a serious advantage in space and multiple Black weak spots much better versus the Queen OTB.
I wonder if he would have played the line against a more established player?
|Sep-29-11|| ||DrMAL: <SChesshevsky> Great name you picked LOL...good questions too. I assumed he was not familiar with it, as 7...g5 was unusual even if so strong (best?). It's only speculation but I think he would have played it (basically, 9.Nd2 since 9...Bg4 forces 10.Nxe4) against anyone, it has good winning chances. Maybe with a top level player he'd expect counter-sac 11...Qxf6 which then looks drawish that's the only factor against, cheers.|
|Sep-29-11|| ||Shams: <SChesshevsky>
Capablanca had himself played the Breyer Gambit before:
Capablanca vs E S Maddock, 1922
As for the flashy sac shown here (completely sound by the way), he had probably seen this Spielmann game or another like it:
Spielmann vs J Moeller, 1920
|Sep-29-11|| ||DrMAL: Thanx <Shams> this explains to me why he could have played 9.Nd2 in a simul so quickly. From Spielmann vs J Moeller, 1920 game no doubt he was already familiar with it.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||OhioChessFan: I realize it was just a simul, but I can't believe Capa missed 12. Bxg5|
|Aug-03-15|| ||Old Chess: Nova York, 23 de Janeiro de 1922.

|Oct-26-15|| ||ToTheDeath: Great simul queen sac by Capa. A shame he never played like this in tournaments. He had the talent but was too lazy to calculate sacs like Alekhine.|
|Oct-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: <Capablanca had himself played the Breyer Gambit before:|
Capablanca vs E S Maddock, 1922>
These games were played simultaneously...
|Dec-15-15|| ||TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in New York, New York on February 23, 1922.|
Capablanca scored +37=3-0.
|Mar-15-16|| ||al wazir: <OhioChessFan: I can't believe Capa missed 12. Bxg5>: Bh6 13. Nxd5+ Ke8 14. Bxd8 Bxd5 15. Bxc7. White has three ♙s for his trouble. Boring.|
|Mar-15-16|| ||beatgiant: <OhioChessFan>,<al wazir>
Why wouldn't Black reply 12. Bxg5 <Ke6> and then 13. Nxf3 Bh6. I don't see the big advantage compared to the actual game. What am I missing?|
|Apr-03-16|| ||cunctatorg: The bottom line: some Capablanca's games, being played in simultaneous exhibitions, are real gems and masterpieces!!|
|Mar-17-18|| ||Great Bear: Time to resign, because of mate in 3. 25... Kd8 26. Rf7 Kc8. 27. Rf8 Rf8 28. Rf8#|
|Mar-17-18|| ||Grandma Sturleigh: <<beatgiant> Why wouldn't Black reply 12. Bxg5 <Ke6> and then 13. Nxf3 Bh6. I don't see the big advantage compared to the actual game. What am I missing?>|
12. Bxg5 Ke6 13 gxf3! and Black doesn't have a good answer to the threat of Bh3+.
|Feb-06-19|| ||DrGridlock: <InspiredByMorphy: Black should have fought fire with fire and sacrificed the queen right back with 11. ...Qxf6!>|
Computer analysis confirms 11 ... Qxf6 as black's best reply.
But you're playing a simul against Capablanca, and suddenly find yourself a up a queen for a knight with no imminent mating threats. Aren't you going to try to keep the queen?
