@NM Reb Yeah the Candidates Matches were awesome but who's going to pay for them? And the answer is...probably no one. Or else we'll see 6 rd matches that end up being settled by blitz games...after a 3-3 tie - how impressive. And then we get to see a World Championship Match consisting of a lousy 12 games, that might also end up being decided by blitz games.
BTW is there a source for Capa's complaint to Stalin? What event was he complaining about? He talked to Uncle Joe in person about this?
Capablanca talks to Stalin about Russian cheating - Put this in google and you should get several sources . It happened at a tournament in the 30s in Moscow and this incident was even later retold by his widow .
It seems some people only count how taking draws loses potential points, but fail to see how a series of easier matches for one challenger, can be a big advantage against someone who has had to play many grueling matches.
