Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-15-05  paladin at large: I don't know what the losing moves are but they must be fairly early. Capablanca menaces the queen side and center with his queen and knight promintory on d6, such that Menchik has no attractive options. 20......Bb6 is no good, as it allows Capa to get rid of his bad bishop and improve the safety of his king.
