R. Capablanca New York, 1913 Irregular Opening Some exquisite endgame play marks this little-known game of Capabfanca's. The scanty notes furnished by Euwe, Nimzowitsch, or Capablanca himself (in whose books the score of this game appears) do not indicate the beauties that are hidden beneath the surface of the play. There is a tantalizing comment, though, by Capablanca after Black's 37th move, which reads, 'The student should, from now on, examine the ending move by move. 1 did as instructed, and discovered (to my pleasure) that there was brilliance galore in the moves that were never made-in the ideas that gave meaning to the moves actually made!

25 Rclxa1 Be5xal Now we have a four-Bishop ending, a rare occurrence i n practical play. 26 Kg142 Kg8-f7 27 KfZ-el 06-e5 Gangway far the King! 28 Kel-d2 Kf7-e6 29 Be2-d3 Page 30 g7-g6 33 ... 34 Bb5-a6 Be4xg2 Makes way for the passed Pawn, which might give Black some trouble. 34 Bal -f6 35 Be3-f2 Bfk5 ,... This Bishop i s now centralized, and controls the Queening square of White's passed Pawn. b4-b5 h7-h6 On 36 . .
