Addendum 2: childhood challenges

Before his long match with Juan Corzo, Capablanca played 10 quick minimatches against players of Cuba. Clocks were used and Capablanca's average rate of play was 140 moves an hour (53 for his opponents), his score being +13 -3 =2.

+2-0=0 vs Delmonte
+2-0=0 vs Paredes
+1-1=0 vs E.Corzo
+1-0=1 vs Fiol
+0-2=0 vs J.Corzo
+2-0=0 vs Gavilan
+1-0=0 vs Ettlinger
+1-0=0 vs Marceau
+1-0=1 vs Sterling
+2-0=0 vs Blanco

(*) Capablanca does not acknowledge Corzo's last two games in "My Chess Career"

(*) it is also of note Capablanca's moving rate in this match: 88 moves an hour (Corzo: 52/hour). So, those were semi-rapid games by nowadays standards.
