  chancho: 44...Qxf8 45.d7 and Black is toast.
May-18-10  sLYchoPs: I really like the little sequence at the end that allows the Q on f7.
Oct-03-13  Whitehat1963: Such a beautiful ending sequence. I'm not sure where the best position is for a puzzle, but it's potentially a great one.
Nov-22-14  gmelfranco: guao maestro me quede asombrado de su juego !!!
May-11-16  CountryGirl: This is a very instructive game for us club players...Black plays fairly sensibly, but Capa shows how to gradually overcome him.
May-11-16  RookFile: Black didn't do something like ...b5 and ...b4 to try to murk things up. You don't want to let Capa play on auto-pilot.
Dec-10-20  Stolzenberg: The position after 7. Be2 appeared exactly the same day 10 years later at Wolf vs Tartakower, Maehrisch-Ostrau, 1923. Instead of 7. ... e5 Black should have played 7. ... Qc7 or 7. ... 0-0, like Tartakower did in the a.m. game, which can be found in this database. +++++
The black d-pawn should remain on d5 or should move to d4 sooner or later. 9. ... de was helping White to develop his pieces and conquer the weak square d5. +++++
16. ... fg opened the diagonal b3 - f7 to the queen and the bishop. Instead 16. ... hg 17. Ne3 Nf6 would have been healthier and more cautious, despite this position is favourable to White due to the weakness of d5. After 20. Bg4 Nd7 Capablanca was probably very contented with his advantage. +++++
Prof. Grommer finished this tournament at the bottom of the table with +1 =1 -9.
Dec-10-20  RookFile: Capa's play in the early middlegame resembled playing the Old Indian Defense, except that he had the white pieces.
