May-17-05  Swindler: Na... I vote for this one: Janosevic vs Geller, 1968 (though the kibitzing is fun...)
Oct-23-07  capablancakarpov: ┐Boring? You should know historical circunstances before made some statements, this is an historic one, 13th and last round of New York National 1913 Tournament, wich Capablanca won with an astonishing +10-1=2.

  Phony Benoni: Before this game, Capablanca was leading the tournament with 10.5, just ahead of Marshall with 10.0. Capablanca had started the tournament with ten straight wins, but a loss to Jaffe and a draw with Chajes may have sapped even his confidence.

Given the circumstances, this was a very reasonable game for him to play.

Jul-17-16  RookFile: Capa made sure he took home 1st place prize money. I'm sure it wasn't much, so you might as well make sure you win it.

Not close; then again, given the circumstances, an outcome not at all surprising either.
