Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-12-04  Bobak Zahmat: Can someone explain why Teichmann played 22. ... g6 instead of 22. ... h6?
Nov-12-04  refutor: he was trying to avoid 23.Nf5+ Kf8 24.Bxf6 gxf6 25.Nd6 Rc7 26.Nxb7 Rxb7 27.Rxd5
Feb-02-06  euripides: An extra passed pawn on its own does not typically win an opposite-coloured bishops endgame. Capablaca goes into this one on move 30 because he has anther advantage; Black's weak black squares make it impossible for him to stop White's king penetrating via c5 or e5. According to Hooper and Brandreth, this suprised 'both his opponent and his contemporaries' and it remains instructive. Capablanca, though, just says 'White has an easily won game'.

  chancho: From Chess Fundamentals, page 215:

Capablanca: <This ending has the merit of being played against one of the finest players in the world.>

Aug-30-12  birthtimes: Capa wrote, "In this game again, practically from the opening, White aimed at nothing but the isolation of Black's QP. Once he obtained that, he tried for and obtained, fortunately, another advantage of position elsewhere [beginning with 16.Rxc8!] which translated itself into the material advantage of a pawn. Then by accurate playing in the ending he gradually forced home his advantage" (from Chess Fundamentals, page 215).
Dec-03-14  Joe le Taxi: According to Jack Spence (The Chess Career of Richard Teichmann) the game ended in a draw after 30... Bxc8. But it's not correct : see "La Stratégie" 1913, p. 486 and "Chess Fundamentals" (p.55)
Jun-10-15  TheFocus: This is match game two of a two-game match. It was played on November 20, 1913 in Berlin, Germany.

Capablanca won both games.
