So in my last bloglesson (Strategy in chess: 5. Pawnoffer in middlegame) I gave an example, how grandmaster Uhlmann gave a pawn for locking out an very active bishop for the rest of the game. And this against great Bobby Fischer!-

Today is this article I want show another famous game, where great Capablanca gave no pawn, but also locked out opponents bishop. This became, similiar as in Fischer - Uhlmann, the decisive motive.

1. act: Taking opportunity and locking out opponent`s bishop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. act : Free his own bishop and win!
