© Jonathan Whitcomb 2011 Black must now recapture at e5 Capablanca, of Cuba, captured, at e5, the black bishop. Why did he appear to give up his queen? It is not really a queen sacrifice, but part of a lovely tactical combination. If black does not capture the white queen, the game is practically over, for white would be a piece ahead in serious competition. See the next move in this tactical chess combination, seen in a game played in a New York tournament in 1918. Woetzel Sighting on Umboi Island Late in 2004, David Woetzel (of New Hampshre) and Garth Guessman (of California) explored part of Umboi Island in Papua New Guinea, a few weeks after the Whitcomb-Paina expedition. While Guessman was away in a village meeting, Woetzel saw a strange light flying in the distance. “My sighting was so quick that it was impossible to get a video—maybe 2 seconds  . . . [The flying light was] almost golden and shimmering around the edges. It looked like an old-fashioned street light in the fog.”  “There was no tail and it was flying horizontal from  Mt. Barik toward  Mt. Tolo.” [Lake Pung is near Mount Tolo.] Obviously Woetzel was not telling any lie about this, for he truthfully admitted that he failed to see any form or features. White Queen Takes Bishop The American David Woetzel Tactics are critical in chess.
