Feb-06-12  thegoldenband: Capa misses 7. e5, after which 7...Nbd7 8. Nxe6! is crushing, as in E Romanov vs C Kuehner, 2007, since 8...fxe6 loses major material after 9. Qh5+ g6 10. Bxg6+ hxg6 11. Qxg6+ Ke7 12. Bg5+, or 9. Qh5+ Ke7 10. Bg5+ Nf6 11. exf6+ Kd6 12. fxg7. Black could play 7...Ne4 instead, but that doesn't look too appetizing.
Jun-10-15  TheFocus: This is match game two of a two-game match. It was played in Vienna, Austria on March 14, 1914.

Capablanca won one game and drew the second.
