Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-22-05  who: I love the comment <A very interested and far-sighted combination, it is a pity that later Black does not find the right continuation.> Clearly it wasn't really a far-sighted combination if he didn't see the correct finish.
Aug-22-05  RookFile: Maybe he was nearsighted instead of farsighted.
Jan-11-09  RandomVisitor: Maroczy's analysis might be flawed...

26...R4c7 27.Qxb5 Rc6 28.Qe5! Rg6 29.Qh2 Rc5? 30.Bxc5 e3 is met with 31.Bxf7+ winning for white.

Black could instead try 29...Rcc6 for an advantage, so white could try 28.Nf4

instead of 28.Qe5.

Jan-11-09  RandomVisitor: 18.Qe5 might be better.

16.Bxf6 Bxf6 17.Ne4 or 16.f3 d4 Nxf6 might be improvements.

Jul-27-09  birthtimes: Capablanca, in his book "A Primer of Chess," suggests 26. Rd2 as a way to fend off all Black threats, rather than 26. Qd7.
