Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-06  Resignation Trap: This game is the same as Levenfish vs Capablanca, 1936 , except that White's move there is given as 6.Bh4.

According to my source, Weltgeschichte des Schachs #14 Capablanca, 6.Bf4 was played, and the other score should be placed in the alternative game score column.

Feb-10-06  Calli: <Resignation Trap> Bf4 is correct. I have Levenfish's notes. He says

"6...Bf4 In the present tournament, both 6.Bh4 and 6.Bxf6 were tried; in any case White did not acheive much." - Tournament Book

The other game should be deleted. I'll leave it to you to convince CG :-)
