[Event "New York"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Capablanca"] [Black "Spielmann"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "D02"] [Opening "Queen's Pawn: 2.Nf3 e6"] 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 e6 3. c4 Nd7 4. Nc3 Ngf6 5. Bg5 Bb4 6. cxd5 exd5 7. Qa4 Bxc3+ 8. bxc3 O-O 9. e3 c5 10. Bd3 c4 11. Bc2 Qe7 12. O-O a6 13. Rfe1 Qe6 14. Nd2 b5 15. Qa5 Ne4 16. Nxe4 dxe4 {Looking at this position it hardly seems possible that White will soon have a passed pawn on the a-file!} 17. a4 Qd5 { 17...bxa4 18.Bxa4 Bb7 19.Qc7} 18. axb5 {The pawn cannot be captured because of the pin on the a-file. Black captures the bishop at g5, but this is not relevant to the action.} 18... Qxg5 19. Bxe4 Rb8 20. bxa6 {In return for the piece, White has three pawns, normally considered enough compensation. But the fact that one of them is a passed pawn nearing the promotion rank, and that the path to the 8th rank is clear, is decisive.} 20... Rb5 21. Qc7 Nb6 22. a7 Bh3 23. Reb1 Rxb1+ 24. Rxb1 f5 25. Bf3 f4 26. exf4 {White won.} 1-0
