Feb-19-07  kereru: Brilliant game by Vallejo. Remarkably, he was following a 94 year old Capablanca game.

  InspiredByMorphy: paladin at large left some of Capablanca's notes on that game kereru. Among them Capa said this "12..Nd4 "This complicates the game unnecessarily. Re8 was simple, and perfectly safe." Pons disagrees apparently.
Feb-19-07  Illogic: Dizzying tactics. Guess Vallejo was boned up on his center game theory :)
Aug-06-08  thathwamasi: Dennis Monokroussos has chosen this game for wednesday night lecture this week.
