Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-03  fred lennox: Capablanca is not a bishop pair lover. It could be said he's a single bishop lover with a pawn chain or central pawn(s) of opposite color.
Nov-22-05  hellnation: capablanca play sooooo boooooring!
tartakower forever!!
Nov-22-05  CapablancaFan: Boring or logical? :-)
Apr-01-07  shoorrk: nobody played more logically than capa! The way he trapped to bishop was incredible.
Dec-04-07  M.D. Wilson: It's games like this that remind me why I love Capablanca so much!
Mar-12-10  jmay: capa's rook moves are programmed in his psyche. its the same way a spider knows to weave his web.
Mar-12-10  ounos: Extremely confident technique, starting by 15. Nb3 and to the very end of the game. Tartakower could very well resign at Nb3 and avoid the torture.
May-13-15  Howard: Wouldn't resigning at the 15th move be a bit premature ?!
May-13-15  RookFile: I appreciate the last 20 moves of the game or so. Capa is in no hurry. His advantage of the exchange is black's problem, not his. He takes his time and crushes the life out of black's position.
