Dec-08-11  AVRO38: This game was played 2 days before Germany surrendered to the Allied forces.
Feb-22-21  Stolzenberg: <Position after 11. ... Be6:> Compared to the French Defense, Exchange Variation, Monte Carlo Variation (C01): 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 exd5 4. c4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Be7 6. Nf3 0-0 7. cxd5 Nxd5 8. Bd3 Nc6 9. 0-0 Be6, White has gained a tempo, because his rook has already moved to e1.
Feb-22-21  Stolzenberg: <Position after 16. ... Nb4:> Instead of playing the cautious move 17. Be4, Capablanca fearlessly started an attack at the kingside with 17. Re4!
Feb-22-21  Stolzenberg: <Position after 48. ... Rxg2+:> Could someone help with a 7-chessmen endgame database?

  nizmo11: <Position after 48. ... Rxg2+:> Stockfish says this is winning for White, and was winning until the hasty 51. c6? made it a draw. According tb, the key move is 51. Qf3! preventing Rc3 and if 51...Rf2 (51... Rxc5 52. Qg3+ winning a Rook) 52. Qg3+ and Black is unable to double on c-file to stop the c-pawn.
Feb-23-21  Stolzenberg: <Position after 48. ... Rxg2+:> I supposed so, but now it is confirmed. Thank you, nizmo11!
