Aug-26-09  birthtimes: 18. Qxc3? 25. Nc2?? 29. Qe2?? A lot of Capa's wins came against guys who made these kinds of moves--but he did know how to take advantage of them...
Mar-22-10  xombie: 24.. Qf8!! seems to be the move of the game. We can clearly see that it belongs to the class of mysterious moves that aim at prevention. In this case, it aims to render e4 useless-in fact, harmful, which becomes apparent on move 28 ... Qf4.
Mar-22-10  BishopsPawn: Huh? What's the idea, if any, behind 25. Nc2? Seems like an invitation to rip open the kingside, an invitation black gladly accepts!
Aug-23-10  xombie: <BishopsPawn>: Perhaps white did not like the immediate b4 (can't blame him), which of course seems losing. The game seems lost anyway.
