Mar-28-10  BobCrisp: Capa plays well enough but 15.g4? just invites the attack and Germann duly obliges. The clever 18.Nc5 was White's last chance when 18...Bxe5 19.Nxd7 Kxd7 20.gxh5 f4 21.Bd2 Rg5 22.Rg1 Rxh5 23.Bc3 Bxc3 should be drawn.
Mar-28-10  AnalyzeThis: Black was a master, and he certainly played like it in this game.
