  optimal play: A 16yr old Capablanca plays a slightly unusual line against the Petrov, with 5.Bxe4 then sees off a dangerous attack before turning the tables on his opponent for a nice finish.

  TheFocus: A friendly game played in New York, New York on January 5, 1905.

When asked what he would do if Black should play 29...Rxe6, Capablanca astonished the audience by at once replying that he would force checkmate in ten moves, commencing 30.Qb8+ Kg7 31.Bd4+ Rf6 32.Bxf6+ - <Unknown Capablanca>, pg. 138.

  MissScarlett: It's actually mate in 9. The venue is very likely the Manhattan CC. The source for <TUC>'s report remains elusive.

  MissScarlett: Scrub that. It isn't elusive at all. The piece is by Helms from the <BDE> of January 8th, 1905, Capa's first write-up in the American press (albeit some of the given career details are wrong), and quoted by both Winter (1989) and Sanchex (2015) in their respective books.

Although Helms doesn't explicitly state the venue is the Manhattan CC, it's clearly implied.
