1. e4 {Notes by J. R. Capablanca} e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6
4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Nxe4 6. d4 b5 7. Bb3 d5 8. a4 Rb8 {Lasker
insists on a move that he admits gives him no advantage, and
Schlechter makes this inferior move instead of 8...Nxd4 9.Nxd4
exd4 10.axb5 Bc5 11.c3 O-O.} 9. axb5 axb5 10. dxe5 Be6 11. c3
Bc5 {Better, I believe, than 11...Be7, as he played in the
fourth game.} 12. Nbd2 12... O-O 13. Bc2 Nxd2 14. Qxd2
14... Qd7 15. b4 Be7 16. Re1 f6 17. Qd3 g6 18. Bh6 Rfe8
19. exf6 {19.Ra6 should be considered. If 19...fxe5, then I
believe 20.Rxc6 would win, as after 20...Qxc6 21.Nxe5,
threatening 22.Nxg6, to which Black seems to have no
defence. Also, if 19...Bf5 20.e6!} Bxf6 20. Bb3 20... Bf7
21. Rad1 Ne5 22. Nxe5 Bxe5 23. h3 23... Qd6 {There seems to be
no reason for giving up a pawn here. 23...c6 seems safe
enough.} 24. Bxd5 Bxd5 25. Qxd5+ Qxd5 26. Rxd5 Bxc3 27. Rxe8+
Rxe8 28. Rxb5 Re4 29. Rb8+ Kf7 30. b5 Re1+ 31. Kh2 Be5+ 32. f4
{This move is weak; it blocks the diagonal of the white
bishop. 32.g3 was the right move. If then 32...Re2 33.Kg2 Bd4
34.Rf8+ Ke7 35.Rf4 Rb6 36.Bg5+, with winning chances. After
the text move, Black forces a draw very cleverly.} Bd4 33. Kg3
Re3+ 34. Kg4 Rb3 $1 35. f5 Rb4 $1 36. fxg6+ Kxg6 37. Bf4 Be5
38. g3 c6 39. Rb6 h5+ 40. Kf3 Bxf4 41. gxf4 Kf5 42. Rxc6 Rb3+
43. Kg2 Kxf4 44. Rc4+ Kg5 45. Rc5+ Kh4 46. Re5 Rg3+ 47. Kf2
Rxh3 1/2-1/2

Re: Games annotated by capablanca's

[Event "Berlin, WCH"]
[Site "9"]
[Date "1910.01.10"]
[EventDate "?"]
[Round "9"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[White "Carl Schlechter"]
[Black "Emanuel Lasker"]
[ECO "B33"]
[WhiteElo "?"]
[BlackElo "?"]
[PlyCount "129"]

1.e4 {Notes by J. R. Capablanca.} c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4
4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 {Altogether unusual and I believe not very
good as Black's d pawn remains weak. It is not easy, however,
to discover how to get at it, and for a surprise the move
proved first-class, as Black got the better game.} 6.Nb3
{6.Ndb5, I believe was the right answer. Black would then have
to play 6...d6, not 6...Qa5 because of 7.Bc4 and if then
7...Nxe4 8.Bxf7+ Kxf7 9.Qd5+ with the better game.} Bb4 7.Bd3
d5 8.exd5 Nxd5 9.Bd2 Nxc3 10.bxc3 Bd6 {Black has now a
beautiful game, which shows that White's treatment of the
opening was not the best.} 11.Qh5 Qc7 12.O-O Be6 13.Bg5 h6
14.f4 {Sacrificing a pawn for an attack on the center against
the king. He might have played some move like 14.Rad1 and
waited for developments, as Black could not castle on either
side.} exf4 15.Rae1 Kd7 16.Bf5 Raf8 {Here is what Lasker
himself has to say about the situation, and I agree with him:
"Here Black could have played 16...Qb6+ 17.Kh1 g6. White could
not now sacrifice his queen, for after 18.Rxe6 gxh5 19.Re7+
Kd8 20.Rd7+ Ke8 21.Bf6 Be5, and White has no satisfactory
continuation. On the other hand, after 18.Bxe6+ fxe6 19.Qxg6
hxg5 20.Qxe6+ Kc7 21.Qf7+ Kb8 22.Nd4 Black would be confronted
by great difficulties, as White would threaten 23.Rb1,
followed by the sacrifice of the rook. But it has been proven
by analysis that I could have escaped all danger. The move
actually made appeared also very strong, but by a fine
combination Sclechter nearly equalized the game."} 17.Bxf4
Bxf4 18.Nc5+ Kc8 19.Bxe6+ fxe6 20.Nxe6 Bxh2+ {Right. Not
20...Qd6 because of 21.Nxf8 Rxf8 22.g3 Be5 23.Rxf8+ Qxf8
24.Rxe5 Nxe5 25.Qxe5 and White is a pawn ahead. Also, if
20...Qb6+ 21.Kh1 Bd6 22.Nxf8 Rxf8 23.Rxf8+ Bxf8 24.Qf5+ and
White is the exchange ahead. Also 20...Qb6+ 21.Kh1 g5 22.Nxf8
Rxf8 23.g3 Bd6 24.Rxf8+ Bxf8 25.Re8+ Nd8 26.Qh3+ Kc7 27.Rxf8
with the exchange to the good. Also 20...Qb6+ 21.Kh1 Bd6
22.Nxf8 Bxf8 23.Re8+ Nd8 24.Qf5+, followed by 25.Rxf8
winning.} 21.Qxh2 Rxf1+ 22.Rxf1 Qd7 23.Nc5 Qe7 24.Qh3+ Kb8
25.Ne6 Ka8 26.Nd4 Qc7 27.Qf5 Rc8 28.Qc5 Nb8 29.Qxc7 Rxc7 {The
attack is over and Black has the better game.} 30.Rf3 a6
31.Kf2 Nc6 32.Ne6 Re7 33.Re3 Kb8 34.Nd4 Rf7+ 35.Rf3 Rc7 36.Ne6
Re7 37.Re3 Kc8 {Black has skillfully improved his position.}
38.Ke2 Nd8 39.Nd4 Rf7 40.Rf3 Kd7 41.Rd3 Ke7 42.Re3+ Kd6 43.Rd3
Ne6 44.Nf3 Kc5 45.g3 Nc7 46.Nd2 Kc6 47.Nf3 Kb5 48.Rd4 Kc5
49.Nd2 Nb5 50.Nb3+ Kb6 51.Rd3 Rc7 52.Kd2 Rc4 53.Rd7 Rg4 54.c4
Kc6 55.Rd3 Nd6 56.Nd4+ Kc7 {Lasker says, "A regrettable
oversight; 56...Kb6 would have won the game." It is indeed
unfortunate that he did not play 56...Kb6. Lasker had very
skillfully brought his advantage to a point where it would
tell and at the moment he is going to reap the fruit of his
fine play, makes a slip and fails to win the game that was
almost a necessity for him.} 57.Ne6+ Kc6 58.Nd8+ Kc7 59.Ne6+
Kd7 60.Nxg7 Ke7 61.Nh5 Rxc4 62.Re3+ Kf7 63.Rf3+ Kg6 64.Rf6+
Kxh5 65.Rxd6 1/2-1/2

1.e4 {Notes by Jose Raul Capablanca from "The Chess Weekly",
1910.} e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O d6 5.d4 Bd7 6.Nc3 Be7
7.Bg5 O-O 8.dxe5 Nxe5 {Of course if 8...dxe5 9.Bxc6 would win
a pawn.} 9.Bxd7 Nfxd7 10.Bxe7 Nxf3+ {If 10...Qxe7 probably
11.Nxd4} 11.Qxf3 Qxe7 12.Nd5 Qd8 13.Rad1 Re8 14.Rfe1 Nb6
15.Qc3 Nxd5 16.Rxd5 Re6 17.Rd3 Qe7 18.Rg3 Rg6 19.Ree3 Re8
20.h3 Kf8 21.Rxg6 hxg6 {With every exchange Black's position
becomes better. Whatever positional advantage White had is
fast disappearing.} 22.Qb4 c6 23.Qa3 a6 24.Qb3 Rd8 25.c4 Rd7
26.Qd1 Qe5 27.Qg4 Ke8 28.Qe2 Kd8 29.Qd2 Kc7 {White, apparently
satisfied with his position has allowed the black king to move
over to the queenside, without making any attempt to stop
him. White now starts an advance of the queen side pawns,
which is checked by Black at once.} 30.a3 Re7 31.b4 b5 32.cxb5
axb5 {Black's strategy has been of a very high order. He has
now a very fine game.} 33.g3 g5 34.Kg2 Re8 35.Qd1 f6 36.Qb3
Qe6 37.Qd1 Rh8 38.g4 Qc4 39.a4 {Black's position was becoming
too alarmingly strong. White prefers to give up a pawn and go
for the Black king, rather than be boxed in without a chance
to move anything.} Qxb4 {39...bxa4, and if 40.Qxa4 Rb8, should
be considered. It looks very much as though Black would
win. The position is worth studying. By playing 40...Rb8,
Black threatens to play 41...Rxb4 and then 42...Rb1, with a
murderous check in sight at f1.} 40.axb5 Qxb5 41.Rb3 Qa6
42.Qd4 Re8 {If Black were satisfied with a draw, 42...Rb8
would have accomplished it. The champion's play is better, as
he could have drawn if he wished up to the fifty-fourth move.}
43.Rb1 Re5 44.Qb4 Qb5 45.Qe1 Qd3 46.Rb4 c5 {46...Rb5 gave
Black some chances of winning.} 47.Ra4 c4 48.Qa1 Qxe4+ 49.Kh2
Rb5 50.Qa2 Qe5+ 51.Kg1 Qe1+ 52.Kh2 d5 53.Ra8 Qb4 {He could
have easily drawn the game by perpetual check, as White could
not afford to play 54.Kg2 and 55.f3 because of 55...Qd4.}
54.Kg2 Qc5 {A most rare case of chess blindness on the part of
Dr. Lasker. 54...Rb8 would at least draw.} 55.Qa6 Rb8 {It was
bad now, but he might have tried 55...Qb6 56.Qc8+ Kd6 57.Ra6
Qxa6 58.Qxa6+ Kc5 and fight it out with the two passed pawns
and his rook against the queen.} 56.Ra7+ Kd8 57.Rxg7 Qb6
58.Qa3 Kc8 1-0

1. e4 {Notes by J. R. Capablanca.} e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6
4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Nxe4 6. d4 b5 7. Bb3 d5 8. a4 {Dr. Lasker in
his annotations to the second game says: "This move gives
White no advantage whatever." Why he plays it again can hardly
be understood.} Rb8 {And now Schlechter, who had done very
well in the second game by playing 8...Nxd4, makes another
move.} 9. axb5 axb5 10. dxe5 Be6 11. c3 Be7 12. Nbd2 $16
12... O-O 13. Nd4 Nxd4 14. cxd4 Nxd2 15. Bxd2 c5 16. Bc2 cxd4
17. f4 f5 18. exf6 Rxf6 $1 19. f5 Bf7 20. Bf4 Rc8 21. Bd3 Qd7
22. Be5 Rh6 23. Qg4 $1 23... Bf6 24. Bxf6 Rxf6 {We give the
score of this game as published by the EVENING POST, the said
paper getting the game directly from Lasker. All other
exchanges have the score as follows: 22.Qg4 Bd6 23.Bd6 Rxd6
24.Qxd4 h6, which would give White a chance to play 25.f6 with
great effect. We are inclined to think that the score
published by the EVENING POST is correct, as Lasker would not
have missed the chance to play 25.f6} 25. Qxd4 h6 26. Rfc1
Rfc6 27. Rf1 Qd8 $6 28. Ra7 $1 28... b4 {The situation is so
difficult tyhat it is hard to pick the best move. The pawn
seems to be lost anyway, and if White now plays 29.Qxb4 Qb6+
would draw.} 29. Re1 Rc1 30. Rxc1 Rxc1+ 31. Kf2 Rc7 32. Rxc7
Qxc7 33. Qxb4 $4 Qe5 {If 33...Qxh2 then 34.Qd4 would probably
win for White as the b pawn could march up protected by the
queen and the bishop.} 34. g3 h5 35. Qb6 {35.Qc3 and if
35...d4 then 36.Qe1 seems to me was the proper course; in fact
that is about the only way in which White would have a chance
to win. The white queen must for the moment remain around the
king to protect it from checks.} $18 35... h4 36. b4 hxg3+
37. hxg3 Qb2+ 38. Kf3 Qc3 39. Qd8+ Kh7 40. Qh4+ $1 $18 Kg8
