  TheFocus: I believe that Nimzowitsch was the actual inventor of 4. a3.

is according to the CG database

<he and I were the only chessplayers at a Jewish boarding house where, I still remember it, the cooking was indeed infinitely better than anything offered by the smarter hotels of the resort.>

Today, of course, they have <Jamie Oliver>. The only guy who was aware that anybody who can boil an egg can make a master chef in England. :-)

Oct-13-15  Garech: I never get tired of playing through this game,a sheer masterclass of dynamics! God only knows the heights Mir Sultan Khan could have reached had he been able to devote his life to chess instead of servitude. Is there anyone else with a perfect score against Capablanca?

Yeah. Iljin-Genevsky and Verlinksy, to name two. When you only play one game, it sometimes happens.

There's only one player with a winning record against Capablanca based on more than one game played, but I'll let you figure out who it is.

Jan-13-17  ChessHigherCat: <EmperorAtahualpa:
Why doesn Black's queen never take the pawn on f2, by the way? For instance, 51...Qxf2 or 55...Qxf2.>

If 55...Qxf2+ 56. Rc6-c2 wins the Q: If 56..Qh4 57. Rh2 or if 56...Qf3 57. Bg2 or if 56...Qg1 57. Bh3!

51..Qxf2, 52. Bg4 and the Q has a whopping total of 1 square to choose from (h4), 53. Bc8 and if BxB, Rx B or if Ba8 Ba6 and either case white can finally penetrate the b(l)ack ranks.

I seriously doubt that I'm the first one to ever analyze these variations. Can anybody confirm those lines?

  beatgiant: On 51..Qxf2, <52. Bh5> Qh4 53. Rh2 looks like an immediate win.
Jan-13-17  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant: On 51..Qxf2, <52. Bh5> Qh4 53. Rh2 looks like an immediate win> Good point. Trading the Q for a B + R wouldn't usually be so dramatic but here 53...QxBh5, 54. Rxh5 gxh5 55. g6 Nf6 56. Bg5 Ke7 57. gxh and black's goose is cooked.

George Edward Wainwright thrashed him 3-0. Khan also beat Capa in a simul, recently submitted; if a pun must be rehashed, at least choose another game.

Jan-14-18  ChessHigherCat: <Is there anyone else with a perfect score against Capablanca?>

I myself am proud to say that I remain undefeated by Capablanca.

  MissScarlett: Michael Glover Atkins also had a perfect 2-0 record, but he got killed in the war whilst the Cuban cowered across the Atlantic.

A teensy bit like <ketchuplover>, then. <I am undefeated vs. Mr.Capablanca>.

Jan-14-18  ChessHigherCat: <offramp> Great minds have the same thoughts (or small minds run in the same ruts)
Jan-14-18  Ratt Boy: <MissScarlett: Michael Glover Atkins also had a perfect 2-0 record, but he got killed in the war whilst the Cuban cowered across the Atlantic.>

"Cowered", huh? WWI was, by any rational account, a stupid war. In contrast to WWII, the countries weren't fighting against imperialist countries looking to exploit and destroy others. It was just a big-ol' extended battle of trench warfare, causing senseless death and destruction. If Capa didn't have to fight, I don't see how that's any kind of stain on his legacy.

Jan-14-18  ChessHigherCat: <Ratt Boy> WWI was all about imperialism (the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Serbia as a protest against the Austrian empire) but you're certainly right that it was a stupid war and anybody in their right mind would have stayed out of it (whereas in fact, almost all Europeans were incredibly gun-ho about it, even intellectuals like Thomas Mann).
Jan-14-18  cunctatorg: Mir Sultan Khan played here at the spirit of Aron Nimzowitsch, a great and profound blockade game but he achieved more than the writer of "My System" ever did!!
Jan-14-18  RookFile: This game is a good example of Lasker's observation that the immobile position must suffer violence.
Jan-25-19  The Kings Domain: Memorable and amusing game. One has to be amused by the repetition of moves, particularly Capablanca's queen. Carlsen sure took notes of this game.
