[Event "Beverwijk"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "O'Kelly"] [Black "Donner"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "A17"] [Opening "English: Anglo-Indian, 2.Nc3 e6 3.Nf3 d5"] {10. DONNER (1927-1988) In many ways the style of Donner calls to mind that of Capablanca, especially as regards to his handling of simple positions and his methods of liquidating. There are points of dissimilarity, however. Donner was better acquainted with the openings; however, his endgame technique lacked the refinement of Capablanca's. Also his results showed much more fluctuation than that of the great Cuban in his day The following game might well have been played by Capablanca} 1. c4 Nf6 2. Nc3 e6 3. Nf3 d5 4. d4 Be7 5.
