Jul-31-11  Whitehat1963: Brilliant to see such a move as 15. Nxc6 during a simul. Brilliant and gutsy move that shows both Capablanca's supreme calculation abilities and confidence.
Mar-21-13  WiseWizard: Looks like 20...Nf4 21. RxN gxN 22. Nc4 with NxB/Ba3 to follow.

  fredthebear: 17.b4 is poisoned w/possibilities to improve White's attack by opening the b-file. One obvious bishop sac line is 17...Bxb4 18.Ba3 BxBa3 19.Qa6+ Kb8 (else 19...Qb7 20.QxQb7#) 20.Rab1+ Ka8 21.Rb7 (threatening Qxa7#) QxRb7 22.QxQb7#.

Someone w/computer analysis is welcome to list all the possibilities relating to 17.b4 if desired.
