  GrahamClayton: Capablanca said of Black's 3rd move 3...dxc4 in the tournament book: "This move is considered weak". Opening theory has changed since then!
Sep-15-10  gauer: Blackburne had a similar opinion of Burn vs Mieses, 1895 & his score with the instead recommended 3 ... e6 (both sides in this move-order, according to this database): Lasker vs Blackburne, 1892 1-0, Von Scheve vs Blackburne, 1892 1/2, Blackburne vs J Mason, 1899 1-0, Blackburne vs Lasker, 1892 0-1.

  wwall: Capablanca said that 34...Ra2 was a mistake and that Black should have played 34...Rg3 and win a pawn with an opportunity to win the game. If 34...Rg3 35.Re3 Bg2+ 36.Kf2 Rxe3 37.Kxe3 Bxh3 and 38...Kf7 and Black might win. But After 34...Rg3, perhaps better is 35.b5 Bd7 36.a4 Rxh3 37.Rc5 Kf7 38.Rc7 Ke6 39.Rxb7 Rh4 40.Bc5 Rxa4 41.b6 and White should be able to draw.
