Jan-26-06  Whitehat1963: Even early in his career, Capablanca displayed a brilliant capacity for finding a good sacrifice that resulted in an advantageous exchange and a simple endgame win.
Apr-24-06  yunis: why not 18. ...dxe5 instead of Bc8?
Apr-24-06  gmgomes: <yunis: why not 18. ...dxe5 instead of Bc8?> I think: 19. Ne5+ Kg8 20. Qe6+ Kh8 21. Nf7+ Kg8 22. Nh6+ Kh8 23. Qg8# All black moves forced.
Apr-24-06  CapablancaFan: <gmgomes><19. Ne5+ Kg8 20. Qe6+ Kh8 21. Nf7+ Kg8 22. Nh6+ Kh8 23. Qg8# All black moves forced.> That line dosen't work. 20.Qe6+??...Nxe6! The correct continuation is if 18...dxe5? black loses at least a piece to 19.Bc4+! Bd5< the only move to temporarily stop mate> 20.Qf5+!<this move alone recovers a piece> 20...Bf6 <if 20...Kg8 21.Bxd5+ Kh8 22.Ne5 threatening a devestating knight fork on f7> 21. Bxd5+! Ne6< the only move that dosen't lose the exchange> 22.Ne5+! <this move is possible because of the pin of the bishop on f6.> 22...Kf8 <all other moves lose on the spot> 23.Bxe6. Now white is up a piece and black is strategically lost. It took me about 5 mins. to find the whole line. Capa no doubt saw it in a flash.

  maxi: The problem with this game is that Tennenwurzel time and time again is able to find the most passive line. But in compensation we have the very cute move by Capablanca 18.♖e4! with the idea of enabling c4 for the White Bishop.
