Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-07-05  paladin at large: I read somewhere that Capablanca felt, at least at one time, that 5. Qe2 is the best course for white.

12.......g5 is bad for Marshall, for sure. Capablanca has the upper hand and, winning a pawn, gives it back, for an even more dominating position. Marshall's simplification with 23.....Bxd4 does not help but, he did not want the white knight to go to f5, of course.

Jul-07-05  Koster: 5.Qe2 was played several times by Spassky against Petrosian, without much success. Here's an example of strong play by black - P Trifunovic vs Bronstein, 1957
Jul-07-05  Kangaroo: Interesting enough, but this game has a twin - see < Lasker vs Marshall, 1914 >
Jan-22-06  Whitehat1963: Capablanca makes it look so easy.
Jan-10-21  Stolzenberg: Keres recommended 16. ... Nc5. Another idea would be 16. ... Bf6.
