Savielly Tartakower is about to grab Capas g2 pawn. Tarta can protects his h pan with his rook?

  keypusher: <Owl> <Bob726> According to Tartakower's <My Best Games of Chess>, the score is wrong. On move 36, instead of Kc4, Capablanca played Re7 and Tartakower responded ...Rb5. Only now did Capablanca play Kc4. Tartakower responded 37...Kg3 and they agreed to a draw in light of 38. Rg7+ Kf2 39. Rh7 Kxg2 40. Rxh4, etc.

This game is also reprinted in 500 Master Games of Chess, where Tartakower calls Capablanca "a high exponent of the art of not losing."

White to move, move 23. I wonder if Carlsen would have won this for black? What's the computer evaluation?

  Retireborn: <offramp> Houdini reckons both 23.Re7 and 23.Rc1 as played good enough to hold the draw.

Presumably Carlsen would take a more patient approach eg with 30...Kf6 instead of 30...h4. Black's chances aren't very real though.

Capablanca's remarks in his book chess fundamentals suggest that he might have played 27...Rh5 instead of 27...Rf5, to name one alternative. Another alternative is to what was played is 19...Nd5 20 Rhe1 Rae8
