Mar-17-05  williscreek: <yunis: why not direct Rxc5 instead of Nd7 on move 32?> Then white would play Rxf6 and d7 with the pawn soon promoting to a queen.
Jul-05-06  Fast Gun: Brilliant play from Capablanca!! He had to have forseen 33.Bxa6!! when he played 29.c5 or else the forcing sequence fails and the passed pawn on which Capa intends to use to win the game will be lost for nothing!! (I wish I could play like this)
Jul-05-06  RookFile: These were from the days when Capablanca could outcalculate anybody.
Jan-31-11  Whitehat1963: Capablanca's ability to simplify with advantage from complex positions is astonishing! Here's an excellent example.

  Chessical: If <32... Rxc5> then 33. Rxf6! Rxf6 34. d7 and wins

I do not think that Black hold a draw after: 35... Re8 36. Rc4 Kf7 37. c7 Rc8 38. Rxe4 Kf6

Aug-15-12  LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:

Capablanca vs F Beynon, 1913.
Your score: 75 (par = 56)


PS. 33. Bxa6!! is a truly brilliant conception from the budding 3rd WC.

Although the material configurations are different in both games, 33. Bxa6!! reminded me of 47...Bh3!! from the following Classic, Topalov vs Shirov, 1998.

Dec-15-20  Stolzenberg: The opening is a Classical Dragon, Battery Variation (B73).
