  vonKrolock: <25.♘e4> After the exchange in 'd1', the black pieces will gain a great activity - but is hard to suggest something different, as black will play next ♘e6 with idea of ♘f4 or even ♘d4, with a dominant sphere of action

  GrahamClayton: According the "Field", the players of the White pieces were Griffiths, Ross and Ruffer.

  maxi: <vonKrolock> Houdini suggests the maneuver 25.Nb3 followed when possible (after the Q exchange by two Rooks) by Nc5 to cover the squares d3 and e6. If Black tries to develop his N at e6 it gets exchanged. Black is still better but it is not so bad.

  offramp: One of the best games ever played in Sydenham.
Jan-03-21  Stolzenberg: This game was probably the first time in his life and the only one until 1925, that Capablanca played the Sicilian Defense with black.
