  keypusher: <paladin at large> Nothing, really, except that it wasn't part of a tournament or match and hence wasn't considered an "official" game. Usually it was played at normal time controls.

  plang: The idea of 11..Bxc3? and 13..Ng7 just looks weird to modern eyes.

  maxi: <paladin at large> Actually, during that historic period, the early 20th Century, this type of so-called 'exhibition' game was so denominated because it was played in scanty underwear.

  TheFocus: This is match game one of a two-game match. It was played on November 17, 1913 in Berlin, Germany.

Capablanca won both games.
