Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-03  refutor: quite an impressive game by capablanca, although you could say that about almost any of capa's game ;)
Feb-14-03  drukenknight: 28 Rf8+ looks tricky.
Jan-13-04  Lawrence: At move 36 Winter was ahead--eval +2.76, Junior 8--but 37.Qh7 was a terrible blunder. He should have played 37.Qc4, analyzed by Alekhine through to move 41 ("Chess Stars") and exactly the same analysis is found by the silicon monster.

drukenknight, the computer confirms that your 28.Rf8+ is far better than 28.f4.

Jan-21-04  capanegra: Indeed, with 37.Qc4 the situation would have been quite intricate for the mighty capa.

  technical draw: For white it was the Winter of his discontent.

<capanegra> Saludos a todos los Uruguayos!

Jan-21-04  capanegra: ¬°Muchos saludos para usted tambi√©n, amigazo!
Sep-19-05  offramp: Capablanca seemed to think this position was a win from quite early on; it shows he was certainly not infallible as regards positional play.
Sep-19-05  Snosko: 37. Qc4 Cxf5!
Sep-19-05  Snosko: I mean Kxf5!!
Sep-20-05  offramp: <Snosko> If you mean 37.Qc4 Kxf5 - wee, that's not possible as the black king is on h5. If you mean 37.Qc4 Nxf5 then 38.g4+ leads to mate.

  Mateo: <capanegra> 34... Re2?? was a blunder. After 37. Qc4 (stopping the threat 37... Qe4) Qc4 (only move) 38. bc white has a won ending. It is simple and not intricated at all.

<refutor> This not an impressive game from neither side: too many errors. Capablanca could have reached a draw on several occasions but he wanted too much against a weaker opponent. He was very, very, lucky in the end.

Dec-21-11  King Death: White's blunder 37.Qh7+ was the first move after the time control (36 moves in 2 hours). He had a bad time down the stretch at Nottingham, as he may have gotten more than a draw in this game if he'd played on: Botvinnik vs W Winter, 1936. He definitely wouldn't have risked losing in that important last round game.
Feb-05-17  The Kings Domain: Such subtle brilliance as ever displayed on the chessboard. Capablanca dominates the center without being overly aggressive. He leaves his opponent floundering around the chessboard looking for a breakthrough which never came.

If you read some of the previous comments on this game you will learn that Capablanca was lost up until Winter blundered on move 37.

Discontent, indeed--one can only imagine the discomfiture Winter felt as he realised the tables had been turned.
