|Apr-26-14|| ||perfidious: One rather doubts Medina Garcia is the player listed, as he would have just celebrated his thirteenth birthday at the time of the event. Another source lists the player as J Medina.|

<perfidious> Well it wouldn't be this <J. Medina>- J Medina.
I agree with your post though. I think it highly unlikely that Antonio Angel Medina Garcia is the correct player in this tournament.
A: As you point out, he would have been 13 years old when he played it.
B: Look at his cg.com player page. He is listed in this event and then no other game is played until 1943. A 1943 start to his notable chess career makes a lot more sense, given his age.
C: Skinner and Verhoeven "Alexander Alekhine's Chess Games 1902-1946" list the player as <J.Medina> (p.434)
D: Peter Lahde "Isaac Kashdan- American Chess Grandmaster" lists this player as <J. Medina> (p.318)
E. Di Felice "Chess Results 1931-1935" lists this player as <Joaquin Medina> (p.108)
|Oct-17-14|| ||Stonehenge: There is a Joaquin Medina mentioned here (simul):

|Oct-17-14|| ||zanzibar: <Stonehenge> that's a beautiful, high-resolution photograph indeed.|
But, just for fun, I was trying to play the game over to see what move Kashdan was making. There seems to be a problem, though, since my <MillBase> version of the Pasadena game has Alekhine castling Q-side.
It's clear that White castled K-side here.
Can't quite figure out what game this photograph is from.
