Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-07  paladin at large: Well, I know why Tylor resigned in this position. In fact, the story is not well known: Tylor was practically legally blind, you see, and the rigors of keeping up with the great Capablanca got him into terrible time trouble. I think Tylor acquitted himself rather well, don't you? Capa's vision of the board was legendary, of course, - even extending a few centimeters beyond the board. Toward the end of the game, when Tylor was moving, Capa noticed the march of time and, ever alert to the potential of small advantages, and with his incomparable feel for position, would give the clock a surreptitious nudge, one time this way, one time that, so that Tylor would lose time trying in vain to hit his clock button. Some say that Capa must have bribed the referee with the promise of a hot date for that evening, but I can find no evidence to corroborate that part of the story.

Now, where was the source for all this - excuse me, I have to clean up my files.
