Jan-07-04  Lawrence: Was Znosko in time trouble? Probably. He didn't see 35.Re1. And 35.Qc5 was an outright boob, he should have played 37.Qa1. (Junior 8)
Feb-09-05  yunis: Qa1-Nxb2!and the win soon come
Feb-09-05  delterp: Enlighten me. What is wrong with
14) Nxe5
It seems to win a central pawn as the h5 knight is put under a discovered attack.

  kingscrusher: On move 33, White had Qf5 with advantage - it seems Capablanca is sometimes not seeing back-row mating resources:

Analysis by Stockfish 15 - 3 threads max:

1. +- (1.96): 33.Qf5 Qd6 34.Qxd3 dxc3 35.Qxc3 Rd8 36.b3 Nd2 37.Qe3 h6 38.Rd1 Qd3 39.h3 Kh7 40.g5 hxg5 41.Qxg5 Rd5 42.Qe3 Qxe3

Capablanca is human after all!
In the light of 33.Qf5 it means that 32..Re8 was safer

And then later as pointed out White missed 35 Re1 which is apparently equal
