  Chessical: In game 27 of the match Alekhine played <10..h6> - Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927

<24...Nc5> has been analysed as inferior to <24...Nf8> 25.Qd2 Bg6 26.f3 Re8 27.Bg6 Ng6 28.e4 with a slight adevantage to Capablanca.

After <24...Nc5> Capablanca could have played <25.bc!> Qf6 26.Rb6 Qg5 27.Kh1 Bg6 28.Bg6 Qg6 29.Qg6 fg with an advantage.

This along with a blunder in Game 27, which turned a winning position into a draw, counts as a significant lost opportunity for Capablanca in the match.

Mar-03-08  Knight13: At least Capa did what he was supposed to do: fire cannons down on the queen side. Can't say he didn't try!

One of the better drawn games in this freakin' long match.
