Kibitzer's Corner
May-28-05  paladin at large: After the queens are gone, a middle-game full of complexities. What is striking is how Capablanca's king walks up the board with almost no cover at all - and bullets whizzing all around - to put pressure on his white counterpart. Black's king moves 9 times, White's king once (6. 0-0.)
Sep-04-06  CapablancaFan: Capa's king gets corageous and decides to join the battle. Like a braveheart, with enemy pieces flying all around, it decides to take care of the enemy king himself!
Sep-04-06  capanegra: Why didn't Johner play 15.Bxf6? It loses the pair of Bishops, but on the other hand ruins Black's Pawn structure.
Sep-04-06  CapablancaFan: <capanegra><Why didn't Johner play 15.Bxf6?> True it doubles black's pawns, but that's about it, look at what black gets in return:

1.Now black has the bishop pair.

2.The e5 square is taken from the knight.

3The f6 pawn restrains the e4 pawn.

4.More oppertunities for the black king to play a supporting role by entering the game via the g7 square.

It is quite understandable why Johner didn't exchange there.
