  sleepyirv: <Ychromsome> Yeah, White probably thought b4 would allow his knight to escape (and take a pawn) on d4 missing 16..Qc3! until it was too late to save the knight.
Jan-15-09  Ychromosome: Thanks for the response <sleepyirv>! Certainly a question mark, but you can see why it was tempting.
Jun-10-15  TheFocus: This game was one of ten exhibition games Capablanca played on his 2nd South American Tour.

This game was played in Buenos Aires, Argentina on August 27, 1914.

Jun-10-15  maxi: <TheFocus> "ten exhibition games"? Do you mean perhaps ten simultaneous displays?
Jun-10-15  TheFocus: No <maxi>. Capablanca played ten individual games against strong players.

Different days for each game.

Jun-10-15  maxi: <TheFocus> I see. That's interesting. Then the description above of the game as a simul must be incorrect.

What was the score for the games?

Jun-11-15  zanzibar: I noticed a Janowski "tournament" along similar lines:

Janowski Exhibition Series at Manhattan Chess Club (1899)

<CG> used the phrase <Exhibition> there. It confused me at first, because I also assumed it a simul.
