  Domdaniel: Black's winning chances against Capa must be slight - practically, near zero - so a draw probably looked like a good opportunity. (I once took a draw in a simul vs Tony Miles, when I could have played on and tried to win.)

But as long as Black holds an extra pawn - or an equivalent initiative - it should be worth continuing.

  MissScarlett: For such faint-heartedness, Kasparov would've give them a serve (alongside a volley of spittle) - Capa probably just raised an eyebrow.
