Kibitzer's Corner
May-05-15  Blind Pigs: This game leaves one with the impression of a cat toying with a moribund mouse. Blacks knights are completely out of play and Capa owns every bit of space on the board. The f5 advance, followed by a queen invasion on h6, will be impossible to counter without massive loss of material
Jan-02-16  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil on August 27, 1927.

Capablanca scored + 10=0-0.

Source is <Capablanca> by Edward Winter.

  MissScarlett: Winter, citing the <ACB>, September-October, 1927, only gives the date as August 1927, a month when Capa played a number of simuls in Sao Paulo. I assume the dating to August 27th comes from Caparros (who gives another game, vs <Barroso>, on that date). Presumably, the source is Sao Paulo newspapers.
Jan-02-16  TheFocus: <MissScarlett> Agreed.
