|Feb-27-04|| ||capanegra: This is probably the shortest of Capablanca’s rare defeats. In fact, judging the quality of the moves, it doesn’t seem to be Capa who is in charge of the white pieces –in spite of the simultaneous play. |
|Mar-17-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Why doesn't Capablanca take the knight on e3? |
|Mar-17-04|| ||capanegra: Because 13...Ne4 regains the piece and leaves Black two pawns ahead. Yet, it could have been better than what he actually played. |
|Mar-17-04|| ||drukenknight: according to Walter Korn, Kevitz had analyzed the Nimzovitch defense even more thoroughly than Nimzovitch. He also participated in the blitz portion of the 1924 international tournament, if I recall. |
|May-24-04|| ||Whitehat1963: This just doesn't look like Capablanca at all. 1. b4(!)? 2. Bb2? Sure, this may have been a simul, but it seems as though he didn't even take it that seriously. |
|Oct-09-04|| ||morphy234: was this blitz? |
|Oct-09-04|| ||WMD: Simultaneous blitz? Now that would be worth watching. |
|Apr-16-06|| ||MorphyMatt: simultaneous blitz has been played before by Reuben Fine|
|Oct-30-08|| ||maxi: This really does not look like Capa at all. I have never seen Capa bringing back his pieces like that, not to mention the peculiar choice of opening for a simultaneous display. I would guess Capa was playing Black and somebody got confused.|
|Nov-06-09|| ||Dravus: A Knight in Capablanca.|
|Feb-13-11|| ||Tigranny: Black also had a chance to play 13...Nc2+, forking king and rook.|
|Nov-13-12|| ||sambo: I'll add my name to the list of people who don't believe that white is Capablanca.|
|Nov-13-12|| ||TheFocus: I have to check my Capparos book, but Capablanca did play the following simultaneous - March 7, Brooklyn, NY: +25=4-4. It must be from there.|
Kevitz defeated world champion José Raúl Capablanca in a simultaneous display at New York 1924, and defeated former world champion Emanuel Lasker in a 1928 simultaneous, also in New York.
|Nov-13-12|| ||Calli: It was March 7. For an account of the exhibition, see the Brooklyn Eagle http://fultonhistory.com/Newspaper%... |
Look in column 1.
|Nov-15-12|| ||sambo: That account has Capa losing in 14 moves. This is only 13! Ha!|
More seriously: I am happy to believe Capa lost, and even willing to believe he was beat handily by some overlooked tactic; but I find it very hard to imagine him saddling himself with a terrible opening, cramping his own position with backward moves, and losing without moving a single piece past the fourth rank.
He played an Orangutan in a simul a few years later (Capablanca vs AG Pedroso, 1927) with better results, so it's possible this really was a learning experience.
But it just is shockingly bad. Ne2?? Just my two cents.
|Nov-16-12|| ||Calli: <sambo> The challenge would be to find the original publication of the game. It's possible that Capa made his 14th move and resigned before moving on. |
In exhibition games, Kevitz beat Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine (score unavailable).
|Nov-16-12|| ||maxi: In the publication quoted by <Calli> it says that Capa had come down with a bad cold and during the display had asked of all present not smoke. A bad cold can affect one's play quite a lot, I guess.|
|Jan-30-13|| ||keypusher: People who don't believe Capablanca could possibly play this badly should take a look at this non-simul effort.|
Capablanca vs Verlinsky, 1925
|Dec-27-15|| ||TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Brooklyn, New York on March 7, 1924.
Capablanca scored +25=4-4.

|Sep-07-16|| ||Christoforus Polacco: Black killed the only one defensor of 'd3' square. So next 14.... Nd3 and the bishop on 'b2' is unhappy :)|
|Nov-22-18|| ||bkpov: Simultaneous, blindfolds, rapids and variants should be placed at different place in database|
