Jan-21-06  RankAndFile: Interesting. 35...d5 is forced because if not 36. Nb4! traps the rook. Unfourtunately, black could'nt both protect his rook AND the e6 pawn after which when it falls so does black's defense.

Unfourtunately, black could'nt both protect his rook AND the e6 pawn after which when it falls so does black's defense.> Yeah you're right. It's amazing how Capa can induce weaknesses like this. Indeed ...35.d5 must have left a bad taste in Walcott's mouth, but he had to pick his poison, save his rook or let the d5 pawn fall. His being a piece down also didn't help.
May-20-06  Seethamraju: I think White must have been lucky for Capablanca.He has more wins with white and more losses with black.

Weird, uncanny, sauve-qui-peut, Twilight Zone stuff indeed!

  beatgiant: How about 27...Rc6 to escape with the rook by playing ...a5/Ra6 or ...b5/Rb6. Of course, Black has only two pawns for a piece, but on the other hand, White's kingside is overextended. In that case, it would be much harder for White to win.

  Mateo: 14...Qd7?? was a huge mistake. Capablanca won against some weak players in this tournament.
