Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: jim42078, Lord Ptarmigan

Game quotation:

Sticking to the plan

Game introduction:

This game features two of the best players ever. Lasker, the longest-reigning World Champion; and Capablanca, one of the most naturally gifted. Here, though, Capablanca struggles to play with any coherent plan, constantly flitting from one idea to another. Lasker calmly takes advantage of this indecision and plays a fantastic endgame. Analysis combines original notes with those of Capablanca from his book "Chess Strategy".

Game conclusions:

Black's mistake here was not to carry out the plan he had been preparing for who knows why he changed he mind. But once you have conceived of a plan it's best to stick to it when possible.
