   Aug-16-20 Capablanca vs R T Black, 1911
Capacorn: Just went over another game played between these two in 1916, covered in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” At one point, Capa had Q for R,B & P, with Black’s king relatively safe. After the latter’s 38th move, Kf8, Capa remarks, “Black here starts a very unfortunate maneuver, which ...
   Aug-15-20 Capablanca vs Ruiz / Molina, 1914
Capacorn: In “My Chess Career,” Capa says, after 39.Qxd6, “And black resigned after a few more moves.” He does this several times throughout the book, something I find slightly annoying. Obviously black is lost, but I would still like to know the complete game score. As far as I can tell, ...
   Aug-15-20 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
Capacorn: Just got done going over this game in Capablanca’s “My Chess Career.” I’ve gained a new appreciation for his play. Yeah, everyone says he was a genius (and there’s no doubting all the experts), but you have to reach a certain level of proficiency to appreciate his strength. I went ...
   Jan-28-18 Leinier Dominguez Perez (replies)
Capacorn: <BartPL: @Capacorn Dominguez was removed from FIDE chess rating because in over one year he didn't play any official game. His rating is frozen at 2739 ELO points.> Thanks, Bart. Makes perfect sense, now that you mention it. I was at a loss as to why he up and *poofed*. ...
   Dec-04-17 I Schneider vs Yudasin, 2001
Capacorn: Surprised there aren’t more comments. Really nice game, with some explosive tactics.
   May-27-17 Karpov vs Hort, 1980 (replies)
Capacorn: <keypusher> <Gypsy> I read somewhere once that retreating bishop moves are notoriously hard to spot. I have fallen prey to these oversights, and I've seen them happen to others, especially in blitz.
   Feb-24-17 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
Capacorn: <visayanbraindoctor> Nothing like pouring yourself a drink and going over some of these classics. I just reviewed this game with Chernev's book. Capablanca's vision was just ridiculous. You explained (very well, I might add) what I marveled at on at least two occasions. As ...
   Jan-29-17 Wesley So (replies)
Capacorn: Say hello to the next chess world champion, Wesley So.
   Jan-22-17 Rapport vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Capacorn: <fisayo123: <Capacorn> Maybe his opponent just played better than him? I know this is hard for some Carlsen fans to comprehend but it happens.> Just to be sure, I'm not a Carlsen fan. But the kid IS the world champ. He boasts the highest ever ELO, and squeezes out wins ...
   Jan-21-17 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
Capacorn: Looks like Magnus blew the win with 56. Bf7+?? If instead 56. Rc8+, black has to give up both rook and queen to avoid a quick checkmate. For example, 56. Rc8+, Kg7 (Kh7 amounts to the same thing) 57. Rf7+, Kh6 58. Rh8 mate. Carlsen is indeed human, my friends.
