Dec-01-04  kostich in time: A very nice positional win in the Sicilian by Maroczy..he uses his two bishops very well
Apr-20-06  Warehouse Duffer: After 29. ... a4, we have the position given by Capablanca in his book A PRIMER OF CHESS [1983 reprint, if I read the copywrite page correctly]. He states, "Black must have the best of the game." But something must be amiss since Capa then states that the game was drawn after "... several errors were made on both sides." !?!?!?
