Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-29-10  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Is 5...Bb4+ already a blunder? According to's database all (!) 16 games with that line were won by white. Amazing.
Sep-30-11  Whitehat1963: Isn't this still playable at the end? Skillfully employed, those extra pawns could pose quite a problem for Capa.

  FSR: <Whitehat1963> Black has nominal material equality, but his laggard development and White's Harrwitz bishops make Black's game hopeless. He obviously has to develop his bishop, so only three moves merit consideration:

15...b6 16.Qc2 or 16.Qc3 wins a pawn;

15...d5 16.Qc3 f6 17.Ba3 wins an exchange;

15...d6 16.Rfe1 Qd8 17.Qc3 f6 18.Qc2 h6 (18...g6 19.Bxg6 hxg6 20.Qxg6+ Kh8 21.Re4 1-0) 19.Qe2 Bd7 21.Qe4 f5 22.Qe7! (22.Qxb7 Rb8 23.Qd5+) Rf7 23.Bc4 1-0.

Apr-19-19  N.O.F. NAJDORF: What's wrong with 12... Nxf1
and if 13 h4,
then 13... Qg6

Capa also played a 25-board simul in Rotterdam on the 4th.
