Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-05  chess man: Nice finish.
May-19-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: Way to hang the queen.
May-19-05  Shams: I agree with Thunder, Winter's fine earlier efforts merited a much better finale. 29.Qf3 stands out, at a quick glance, as sub-optimal. Why not invade with Rc6 or Rc7? Capablanca was narrowly outplayed on this day and got lucky.
May-19-05  fgh: <Shams>: I wouldn't say he was outplayed, he played very well in this game.
May-19-05  Shams: I think white is better after 29 moves but I could very well be wrong. white has no weaknesses to speak of.
Feb-05-09  M.D. Wilson: Not Capablanca's best game, but it's a win nevertheless. Winter's position up to move 29 was good, but Capablanca's position was sound enough. A few inaccurate moves (Nc6 doesn't achieve anything) on Winter's part, and the game is over.
Feb-05-09  AnalyzeThis: One thing about Capablanca is that he moved fast. I'd be willing to bet that Winter was in time trouble, while Capa had plenty of time left on his clock.
Feb-06-09  M.D. Wilson: He moved extremely fast in classical chess. Perhaps only Karpov and Anand compare with him in this regard. Fischer and Stein were faster than most of their opponents, too.
Feb-06-09  euripides: Interesting to see Capablanca playing with the IQP, something he did early in his career by playing the Tarrasch defence but not so much later, and generating dynamic chances to compensate for the static weakness. It looks as if he is willing to repeat at move 29. If <shams'> 29.Rc6/7 perhaps Nc4 e.g. <29.Rc7> Nc4 30.Qg3 Qxg3 31. hxg3 Nxa3 or <29.Rc6> Nc4 30.Rxf6 Qxf6 31.Nxf5 Nxa3.
