|Jul-30-07|| ||paladin at large: 1909 was a wild year for Capablanca, what with two U.S. tours and the extended match with Marshall in various locations, he was constantly on the go. For perspective, here are his results for the four 1909 simuls in St. Louis:|
16+ 1- 1=
17+ 0- 1=
21+ 1- 1=
19+ 2- 1=
|Jan-09-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Thursday puzzle after 18. Bxg7, but you have to play black's next four moves accurately.|
|Apr-04-09|| ||YoungEd: White could have traded queens on move 15, and relied on his better pawn structure (and superior endgame technique!) to win. But I guess that's not what a simul is all about. I agree with <Fast Gun> that in a slow game Capa would never have gobbled up those K-side pawns with his bishop.|
|Apr-04-09|| ||CapablancaFan: <YoungEd> Indeed, 15.QxQ would have most definetly secured at least a draw.|
|May-06-10|| ||Xeroxx: Are you some kind of fan of Capablanca or something?|

<paladin at large>
Capablanca record for 1909 was +686, =20, -14
|Jul-06-13|| ||maxi: Pomeroy plays impressively here.|
|Apr-22-15|| ||ASchultz: Who shocked J.R.?|
|Jun-10-15|| ||TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri on December 8, 1909.|
Capablanca scored +21=1-1.
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: This site (http://www.slideshare.net/knyaz1000...) has the date as February 8, 1909. Capa played simuls on both dates, and lost a game on each occasion. Can anyone find a contemporary source that might decide the matter?|
|Sep-27-15|| ||TheFocus: The date I have given above is incorrect.
<The Games of Jose Raul Capablanca> has February 8, 1909.
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: A primary source would still be nice. Is the information at the site I linked to identical to that in <The Games of Jose Raul Capablanca> (by Rogelio Capparos)? I have assumed it is, but confirmation would be appreciated.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||savagerules: I have all the Capablanca games by Caparros and it gives Feb. 8 1909 St Louis as the date and location and it has the same game score as above. Impressive win by the amateur player in the simul who has no other games listed in the database. Maybe after this game he retired triumphantly from chess forever more.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: I meant in general, not just for this game. Is the layout of the book the same?|
|Sep-27-15|| ||chancho: I have the Rogelio Caparros book, and the date it shows for this game is <02/02/1909.>|
The copyright year of my book is 1994.
|Sep-27-15|| ||TheFocus: I didn't mention but my book is also by Capparos.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||chancho: <The Focus> I have the second edition.|
The date I posted can be found on page 250 of said book.
|Sep-27-15|| ||chancho: Ok, on page 158, Game #58 it has the date 8/2/1909.
February 8, 1909.
So either the typo is here, or in the informal games chronologigal order at the end of the book.
|Sep-27-15|| ||TheFocus: <chancroid> I have the 1991 edition. Game is on page 165.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||chancho: There's no need for that <Focus>.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: I don't believe you people....you just cannot get the staff!|
|Sep-27-15|| ||TheFocus: <MissScarlett> You could try looking through some newspaper archives online. I bet this game was published in a St. Louis paper.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: I wasn't referring to the primary source. My question regarded the similarity between Capparos's book and this site: http://www.slideshare.net/knyaz1000...|
Is the latter simply a digitial reproduction?
|Sep-27-15|| ||morfishine: Lovely finishing combination, but this stuff happens in simuls|
|Jan-10-16|| ||talhal20: Pomeroy deserves credit for winning this game against Capa, even if it was simul.|
