GM Bojkov is back, this time in the Roaring Twenties, explaining how Capablanca could pull another endgame rabbit out of his hat. Starting from a position in which most modern grandmasters would shake hands, the third world champion slowly outplays future world title contender Bogoljubov. After dominating the open file, Capablanca prevents all counterplay and finishes with a pretty pawn mate. Still, Bojkov is amazed at how a world-class player could lose without making any obvious mistakes.
