Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-04-04  WMD: In the tournament book, Bogoljubov showed that Capa could have effected a decisive penetration with his King by playing 73...Kf5.

His mainline runs: 74.h6 Ke4 75.Rg6 Rf8 76.Rxg4+ Kd3 77.Rh4 c3 78.g4 c2 79.Rh1 Rb8 80.Rc1 Rh8 81.g5 Rg8 winning.

Mar-23-06  Whitehat1963: Another great R+P ending worthy of study.
Mar-24-06  waddayaplay: And another example of Capablanca missing a vital combination, which he does at move 37. Nice combinations.
Mar-24-06  Whitehat1963: Do you really think Capablanca just
"missed" that combination? I think he got out-maneuvered and couldn't avoid it. It's not like Spielmann was a patzer. Nevertheless, Capa manages to go from a pawn down after the exchange to a pawn up (albeit nearly 50 moves later). He just can't convert the position into a win. Still, this is yet another example in which Capa's willingness to struggle and fight pays off. He probably should have lost this one, but he comes out slightly ahead, even if he couldn't convert it.

Damn the endgame is hard! Capablanca misses an important win here that was his for the taking.

Aug-20-12  master of defence: How was pointed earlier, Capablanca missed 73...Kf5!, winning the endgame by support the advance of c-pawn, let┤s see: 73...Kf5 74.h6 Ke4 75.Rg6 Rf8 76.Rxg4+ Kd3 77.Rh4 c3 78.g4 c2 79.Rh1 Rh8 80.g5 Rg8 81.h7 Rxg5+ 82.Kf2 Rf5+ followed by 83...Rf8 wins.
