Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-31-13  Karpova: In C.N. 8169, Edward Winter points towards the publication of this game on pages 326-327 of the 1936.05.14 'CHESS' without annotations but the following comment:

<‘Capablanca got into difficulties against Ståhlberg, but the latter ran short of time and decided to accept one of Capablanca’s offers to draw. Under the rule which stated that no game should be agreed drawn before 30 moves had been played by each side, the two contestants had to play on a further few moves before handing in their score-sheets. The play now became amusing, both players unconsciously relaxing; first Ståhlberg made a slip which would have lost a piece, and then Capablanca similarly made a move which allowed the possible gain of a pawn. Naturally these mistakes were not exploited since the agreement to draw had been reached. Readers may amuse themselves by looking for them.’>


Feb-06-14  Wyatt Gwyon: <Karpova> Interesting post. Stahlberg indeed had Capablanca on the ropes.
Feb-06-14  Cushion: I believe 26...Nc5! wins a piece, and 30.Bxe5! wins a pawn.
Mar-09-15  Joe le Taxi: 20. Bd6 wins the exchange !If 20... Qc6 21. Ne4.
