Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-05-05  who: Won't 24.Qxe7 allow white to gain an extra pawn (the pawn on c7)?
Jan-06-07  Phony Benoni: If 24.Qxe7 axb5 25.Qxc7 Bxb4, forking on d4 if White takes the bishop.
May-22-07  Silverstrike: <Phony Benoni> 24.Qxe7 removes black's bishop, thus 25...Bxb4 isn't a possibility.
May-22-07  Phony Benoni: <Silverstrike> Oops. I think this is what they call the ol' Retained Image type of mistake in analysis.

That being the case, I obviously have no idea why Capablanca avoided 24.Qxe7. The only possibility I can think of is that he was still thinking about a win, and concerned about the bishops on opposite colors in that line.

May-22-07  erad1288: I believe that after 24. Qxe7 axb5 25. Qxc7 that both Bd3 and Qe6 give black good compensation for the pawn. At least, black will get an attacking position and with Marshall that probably wouldn't be too enjoyable.
Sep-09-12  Garech: Capa did well to turn this around; there's no question that Marshall had an advantage out of the opening.


Nov-22-14  jakc: Capa seems to have learned his lesson on this opening, employing it a couple of times as black in 1928, to great success
