|Oct-06-06|| ||WhoKeres: Can anyone provide the circumstances that this game was played under? I am not familiar with it being recognized as an official tournament game loss for Capa. Perhaps it was an exhibition game, as Loman was a stong Dutch player at the time.|
|Oct-06-06|| ||Calli: Its from a simul: Capa vs. City of London Chess Club, 13 Oct 1913. The Club loaded the simuls in 1911 and 1913 with master players (Atkins, Loman, Sergeant etc). Capablanca had some of his worst simul results: 16W-8L-3d in 1911, 16-7-3 in 1913. Capablanca didn't seem to mind the competition, but played at his usual incredible speed. His attitude apparently being that he got paid the same whether he finished up in a few hours or took a lot of extra time to avoid the losses. Compare and contrast with Alekhine!|

So Alekhine would take longer to make sure that he won because he hated losing so much?
|Oct-13-06|| ||Calli: Yes, a good comparison are the big 50 board simuls held at Armory Hall in NYC, see Game Collection: Alekhine takes Manhattan (and Staten Island too), because Capablanca and Alekhine faced virtually the same teams of players. Alekhine had the better percentage: 30W-6L-14D vs Capa's 28W-6L-16D. However, he finished at 4:05am when they finally convinced the obsessed Alekhine to accept a draw with a sleepy Columbia team. The Cuban, on the other hand, had completely finished before midnight. Just in time for a late dinner date :-)|
