[Black "Jose Raul Capablanca"]
[ECO "D61"]

1.d4 {Notes by J. R. Capablanca} d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5
Be7 5.e3 O-O 6.Nf3 Nbd7 7.Qc2 c5 8.Rd1 Qa5 9.Bd3 h6 10.Bh4
cxd4 11.exd4 dxc4 12.Bxc4 Nb6 13.Bb3 Bd7 14.O-O {The
development is now complete. White has a lone d Pawn, but, on
the otherhand, Black is somewhat hampered in the manoeuvering
of his pieces.} Rac8 15.Ne5 Bb5 {With this move and the
following, Black brings about an exchange of pieces, which
leaves him with a free game.} 16.Rfe1 Nbd5 17.Bxd5 Nxd5
18.Bxe7 Nxe7 19.Qb3 Bc6 {Not Ba6 because of Nd7, followed by
Nc5.} 20.Nxc6 bxc6 21.Re5 Qb6 22.Qc2 Rfd8 23.Ne2 {Probably
White's first mistake. He wants to take a good defensive
position, but he should instead have counter-attacked with Na4
and Rc5.} Rd5 24.Rxd5 cxd5 {Black has now the open file and
his left side Pawn position is very solid, while White has a
weak d-Pawn. The apparently weak Black a Pawn is not actually
weak because White has no way to attack it.} 25.Qd2 Nf5 26.b3
{In order to free the Queen from the defense of the b-Pawn and
also to prevent Rc4 at any stage.} h5 { In order to prevent g4
at a later stage. Also to make a demonstration on the king’s
side, prepatory to further operations on the other side.}
27.h3 {Weak, but White wants to be ready to play g4.} h4 {To
tie up White's King side. Later on it will be seen that White
is compelled to play g4 and thus further weaken his game.}
28.Qd3 Rc6 29.Kf1 g6 30.Qb1 Qb4 31.Kg1 {This was White's
sealed move. It was not the best move, but it is doubtful if
White has any good system of defense.} a5 32.Qb2 a4 {Now Black
exchanges the pawn and leaves White with a weak, isolated
b-Pawn, which will fall sooner or later.} 33.Qd2 Qxd2 34.Rxd2
axb3 35.axb3 Rb6 {In order to force Rd3 and thus prevent the
White rook from supporting his b-Pawn by Rb2 later on. It
means practically tying up the White rook to the defense of
his two weak pawns. } 36.Rd3 Ra6 37.g4 hxg3 38.fxg3 Ra2 39.Nc3
Rc2 40.Nd1 {The alternative Na4, was not any better. White’s
game is doomed. } Ne7 41.Nc3 Rc1+ 42.Kf2 Nc6 43.Nd1 Rb1 {Not
Nb4 because of 44. Rd2 Rb1 45. Nb2 Rxb2 46.Rxb2 Nd3+ 47.Ke2
Nxb2 48.Kd2, and Black could not win. } 44.Ke2 {Not a mistake,
but played deliberately. White had no way to protect his
b-Pawn.} Rxb3 45.Ke3 Rb4 46.Nc3 Ne7 47.Ne2 Nf5+ 48.Kf2 g5
49.g4 Nd6 50.Ng1 Ne4+ 51.Kf1 Rb1+ 52.Kg2 Rb2+ 53.Kf1 Rf2+
54.Ke1 Ra2 {All these moves have a meaning. The student should
carefully study them.} 55.Kf1 Kg7 56.Re3 Kg6 57.Rd3 f6 58.Re3
Kf7 59.Rd3 Ke7 60.Re3 Kd6 61.Rd3 Rf2+ 62.Ke1 Rg2 63.Kf1 Ra2
64.Re3 e5 {This was my sealed move and unquestionably the best
way to win.} 65.Rd3 {If 65.Ne2 Nd2+ 66.Kf2 e4 67.Rc3 Nf3
68.Ke3 Ne1 69.Kf2 Ng2. and White would be helpless. If 65.Nf3
Nd2+ exchanging knights wins.} exd4 66.Rxd4 Kc5 67.Rd1 d4
68.Rc1+ Kd5 {There is nothing left. The Black pawn will
advance and White will have to give up his Knight for it. This
is the finest win of the match and probably took away from
Dr. Lasker his last real hope of winning or drawing the
match.} 0-1

d6 5.d4 Bd7 6.Nc3 Be7 7.Re1 exd4 8.Nxd4 O-O 9.Bxc6 bxc6 10.Bg5
Re8 11.Qd3 h6 12.Bh4 Nh7 13.Bxe7 Rxe7 14.Qc4 {Up to this point
the game was identical with the third. Here Lasker changed the
course of the game.} Qe8 15.Re2 {Re3 had also to be
considered.} Rb8 16.b3 c5 17.Nf3 Bb5 {Not the best.Ng5 was the
right move. The text move leaves Black with an exceedingly
difficult ending.} 18.Nxb5 Qxb5 19.Qxb5 Rxb5 20.Kf1 Ng5 21.Nd2
Ne6 {The maneuvers of this knight are ofmuch greaterimportance
than it might appear on the surface. It is essential to force
White to play c3 in order to weaken somewhat the defensive
strength of his queen’s knight’s pawn.} 22.c3 f6 23.Nc4 Nf4
{Again the moves of the knight have a definite meeting. The
student would do well to carefully study this ending.} 24.Re3
Ng6 25.Nd2 Rb8 26.g3 a5 27.a4 {It is now seen why Black had to
compel White to play c3. With the white pawn at c2 Black’s
game would be practically hopeless, since White’s b pawn would
not have to be protected by a piece, as is the case now.} Ne5
28.f4 Nd7 29.Ke2 Nb6 30.Kd3 c6 31.Rae1 Kf7 32.Nc4 {e5 would
have lead to a much more complicated and difficult ending, but
Black seems to have an adequate defense by simply playing
fxe5, followed by d5, when White retakes the pawn.} Nxc4
33.Kxc4 Re6 {This is the best move and not Ke6 which would be
met by Rd3.} 34.e5 fxe5 35.fxe5 d5 36.Kxc5 Rxb3 37.c4 {Not the
best, but at any rate the game would have been a draw. The
best move would have been Rf1+.} dxc4 38.Re4 {Probably the
only way to obtain a sure draw.} c3 39.Rc4 h5 40.Re3 Rb2
41.Rcxc3 Rxh2 42.Kb6 Rb2+ 43.Kxa5 g5 {There was not any object
for either player too attempt to win such a game.} 1/2-1/2

5.e3 O-O 6.Nf3 Nbd7 7.Qc2 c6 {c5 is the proper move.} 8.Bd3
{Castles on the Queen's side would have been a much more
energetic way of continuing, but probably White did not want
to take the risk of exposing himself to a Queen's side attack,
having then his King on that side of the board.} dxc4 9.Bxc4

15.a5 c5 16.Nd2 { This may not have been White's best
move. Yet it is extremely difficult to point out anything
better.} e5 {Probably the only move to save the game. It was
essential to break up White’s center and to create a weakness
in White's game that would compensate Black for his own
weakness on the Queen's side of the board.} 17.Be4 Bxe4
18.Qxe4 Rae8 19.axb6 axb6 20.Ra7 exd4 21.Qc6 {Qxe7 was
slightly better, but Black had, in that case, an adequate
defense.} Rd8 22.cxd4 cxd4 23.exd4 {Not 23.Ne4, because of
Nb8!} Qf6 24.Qxf6 Nxf6 25.Nf3 Nd5 26.Rb1 f6 27.Kf1 Rf7 28.Rba1
Rdd7 29.Rxd7 Rxd7 30.g3 {There was no reasonable motive to

1.d4 {Notes by J.R. Capablanca} d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3
Nbd7 5.e3 { On general principles it is better to bring the
Queen’s Bishop out first.} Be7 6.Bd3 O-O 7.O-O dxc4 8.Bxc4 c5
9.Qe2 a6 10.Rd1 b5 11.Bd3 Bb7 12.e4 { Played in order to
develop the Queen’s Bishop and thereby condemning his whole
plan of development, since he could have done that before, as
indicated in the previous note, and the only reason he could
have had for playing e3 on the fifth move would have been to
develop this Bishop via b2.} cxd4 13.Nxd4 Ne5 14.Nb3 { The
combination beinning with Bxb5, followed by Nxe6, are wrong,
viz., 14 Bxb5 axb5; 15 Nxe6 fxe6; 16 Rxd8 Raxd8; 17 Qxby Nxe4,
and Black has a won game.} Nxd3 15.Rxd3 Qc7 16.e5 { White
could not play Bg5 because of the rejoinder, Nxe4.} Nd5 17.Rg3
Nxc3 18.Rxc3 Qd7 {It was my impression that, after this
move,Black had a very superior game. } 19.Rg3 Rfd8 20.Bh6 g6
21.Be3 Qd5 { This leads to the exchange of one of the two
Bishops, but it would be very difficult to find a better
move.} 22.Na5 Rac8 23.Nxb7 Qxb7 24.Bh6 Qd5 25.b3 Qd4 { It was
probably here where Black failed to make the best move.25…Bb4
was the better move.} 26.Rf1 Rd5 27.Re3 Ba3 {Bf8 was better,
as white could not very well afford to take the Bishop; he
would be compelled to play first Re4, to be followed later on
by Bf4.} 28.g3 Qb2 29.Re1 Rc2 {Qxe2 followed by Bb4 was the
proper course to follow.} 30.Qf3 Be7 {This was my thirtieth
move; I was very much pressed for time and I could not make
the necessary analysis to find out whether Bf8 would have been
a winning or losing move.If 30…Bf8 31.Bxf8 Kxf8 32. Qf6
Kg8. 33.h4 and Black would have a very difficult position to
defend.} 31.R3e2 Rxe2 {Qxa2 now would lose because of 32.Rxc2
Qxc2 33.Rc1 followed by Rc8+,etc.} 32.Rxe2 Qb1+ 33.Kg2 Bf8
34.Bf4 h6 35.h4 b4 36.Qe4 Qxe4+ 37.Rxe4 Kg7 38.Rc4 Bc5 39.Kf3

Nd5 11.Bxe7 Rxe7 12.O-O Nf8 13.Rfd1 Bd7 {I do not consider the
system adopted by Dr. Lasker in this game to be any good.}
14.e4 Nb6 {...Nxc3 would have simplified matters somewhat, but
it would have left Black in avery awkward position. The text
move, by driving back the bishop, gains time for the defense.}
15.Bf1 Rc8 16.b4 {To prevent c5, either now or a later
stage. There is no Black bishop and White’s whole plan is
based on that fact. He will attempt, in due time, to place a
knight on d6.} Be8 17.Qb3 {White might have played a4 at once,
but wanted at first to prevent the Black Queen from coming out
via d6 an f4.} Rec7 18.a4 Ng6 19.a5 Nd7 20.e5 b6 21.Ne4 Rb8
22.Qc3 {Qa3 at once was best. The text move gives Black a
chance to gain time.} Nf4 23.Nd6 Nd5 {Had the White Queen been
at a3 Black could not have gained this very important tempo.}
24.Qa3 f6 25.Nxe8 {This Bishop had to be taken, since it
threatened to go to h5, pinning the Knight.} Qxe8 26.exf6 gxf6
{To retake with either Knight would have left the e Pawn
extremely weak.} 27.b5 {With this move White gets rid of his
Queen's side Pawns.} Rbc8 28.bxc6 Rxc6 29.Rxc6 Rxc6 30.axb6
axb6 31.Re1 {Bb5 was better.} Qc8 32.Nd2 {This was my sealed
move and unquestionably the only move to keep the initiative.}
Nf8 {...Rc3 would have been met by Qa1.} 33.Ne4 {The White
Knight stands now in a very commanding position. Black's game
is far more difficult than appears at first glance and I
believe that the only good system of defense would have to be
based on ...f5, after ...h6, driving back the White Knight.}
Qd8 34.h4 Rc7 {This might be said to be the losing move. Black
had to play ...h6 in order to be ready to continue with ...f5,
forcing the White Knight to withdraw.} 35.Qb3 {White's plan
consists in getting rid of Black's powerfully posted Knight at
d5, which is the key to Black's defense.} Rg7 36.g3 Ra7 37.Bc4
Ra5 38.Nc3 Nxc3 39.Qxc3 Kf7 40.Qe3 Qd6 41.Qe4 Ra4 {Neither one
of us had very much time left at this stage of the
game. Black's alternative was ...Ra7, which would have been
met by d5, leaving Black with what in my opinion is a lost
position.} 42.Qb7+ Kg6 {If 42...Qe7 43.Qc6 wins.} 43.Qc8 Qb4
44.Rc1 Qe7 {Black's game was now hopeless; for instance
44...Qa3 (best) 45.Bd3+! f5 (best) 46.Qe8+ Kh6 47.Re1 Ra8
48.Rxe6+ Nxe6 49.Qxe6+ Kg7 50.Qe5+, etc. In practically all
the other variations the check with the Bishop at d3 wins.}
45.Bd3+ Kh6 {..f5 would have prolonged the game a few moves
only. 46.Rc7 would always win.} 46.Rc7 Ra1+ 47.Kg2 Qd6
48.Qxf8+ 1-0

played by all the masters. I believe, however, that Bg3 is the

point, since Black cannot take the pawn.} Qb6 16.Rae1 Rae8

impression that Black would then have to defend the pawn by
Bd7 when would follow 29.Nc5 Be8 30.e5. Since Black could play

played 28.c4.} Bb7 29.f3 Re6 30.Rcd3 Ba6 31.Rd4 f6 32.Rc1 c5
