Capablanca vs FC Hoffman, 1922.
Your score: 20 (par = 16)


Jul-09-12  master of defence: What happens after 9...Kxh7 10.Ng5+ Kg6 11. Qg4 f5?
Dec-17-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Providence, Rhode Island on November 20, 1922.

Capablanca scored +43=5-0.

Jun-23-18  DrGridlock: Surprisingly, 9...Kxh7 10.Ng5+ Kg6 11. Qg4 f5 is the way to play the position for black. Computer analysis gives this line an eval of .12

But really - you're playing Capablanca in a simul. Are you going to shoot for a position with your king on g6 as compensation for white's bishop? (Though the game continuation leads to much worse for black!)
