May-19-05  chess man: Capablanca said he played d3 (5.d3) because he never tried the other variations I believe (I may be mistaken but I'm pretty sure). I've never played 5.d3 in my games when I play the Ruy Lopez but I intend to try it out soon. A nice game and an instructive one. 20.Nxe5 black loses his important e-pawn and his defense is shattered against four pawns to two.

  OhioChessFan: Pushing the b pawn seems pointless, and 30.....Rb6 looks awful. Throws away a pawn and gives up the only advantage Black has at that point, the active rook. I am hard pressed to see a decent continuation for Black though.
