  maxi: If Capa is giving the display, why does he have Black?
Jun-15-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Hamburg, Germany on April 4, 1911.

Capablanca scored +26=1-3.

Feb-13-18  CheckMateEndsTheGame: Capa should never enter in to a fight he is not prepared for. 15. g5 should be played to hold.

Apr-22-21  holytramp: <FSR> Solid pun! Takes me Back-arach...
May-01-21  Ned Merrill: Kluxen, not a klutz.
May-01-21  Brenin: Wilhelm Kluxen has +1,-3,=0 in the CG database, but what a +1 to have in your CV! Capablanca was still ten years away from becoming World Champion, but at the time of this game he had just achieved his breakthrough win at San Sebastian.

  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 13...Nxa1 it was better to play 13...Qf6 with possible continuation 14.Bxf7+ Rxf7 15.Qxb3 Qxe5 16.Rae1 Be6 17.Qxe6 Qxe6 18.Rxe6 Rd8 with equality.
May-01-21  JohnBoy: Missed a good chance to play e the winner’s name: Klued Kluxen Klamps.
