  MissScarlett: Neither the <BDE> nor the <ACB> (both Helms, presumably) blame time trouble for the blunder, even though the time control was 15 moves per hour. The thing is, Rf1 is not good even if it didn't drop the Rook (30.Rf1 Rxd4 31.Qf6 R8d7), so I wouldn't discount the possibility entirely.

By curious coincidence, Chajes also blundered on move 30 in the earlier, fifth round game against Capa (Capablanca vs O Chajes, 1915) and there the <ACB> does state <[a] mistake due to pressure of time>.

Chajes has more space and wants to achieve the thematic breakthough d4-d5, but Capablanca stymies this plan with 14...♘c8, 15....♕a5 and 18...♕a6, forcing Chajes to play 19. c5, after which d5 is no longer possible. Capablanca then targets d4, until White blunders with 30. ♖f1.

  sea7kenp: I had been interested, in if Capablanca (or, for that matter, Alekhine) played the Black side of the Scandinavian. Not often, of course! (Incidentally, the Lasker vs Alekhine Game ended in a Draw: Lasker vs Alekhine, 1914 )

  MissScarlett: A blunder requires some thought. This is merely an oversight.
