Jun-27-05  aw1988: Oh, that's funny. I only just now noticed I responded precisely 2 years later.
Nov-03-08  Karpova: From "The Topeka Daily State Journal" of 1909.12.07: <Mr. Moise has played Lasker to a draw and has also met Pillsbury and Marshall but he says that he regards Capablanca as the most wonderful chess player he has ever seen.> The newspaper adds that <the masterly way in which Capablanca plays his knights is worthy of study> but Black's 24th move is called a slip allowing the exchange of Queens.
