|Aug-04-10|| ||wwall: In My Chess Career, Capablanca spells his name Rob. Raubitscheck, with games Capablanca played against him on September 24, 1906 and September 25, 1906. Was this a Columbia University vs some club or other school match?|
|Aug-04-10|| ||TheFocus: Robert was a relative of Rudolf, either brothers or father and son. Both games from 1906 were played against Robert. Once again, <CG> mixes up the games of different people.|
Capablanca never played either Raubitschek in a team match or tournament. All their games were off-hand or blitz games.

"Simultaneous Chess at Carnegie Hall
At the Manhattan Chess Club in Carnegie Hall tonight Mr Robert Raubitschek will give an exhibition of simultaneous chess, contending against twenty or more antagonists. Chess players are invited to attend and participate".

So does <Lasker's Chess Magazine>, June 1906, pg. 53.
|Oct-03-19|| ||Tabanus: There was also a Rudolph Raubitschek b. 6 April 1873 in Machinaw City. He had a cigar business in Pittsburgh, Penn. in 1900 and married in Allegheny 1903 to Anna Hauck. Tobacco salesman in Allegheny 1920. Not our man.|
Our Rudolph I can find in New York 1896 (petition for naturalization), 1905 (NY census Manhattan), and 1918 (WW1 reg. card, Lexington Ave. Manhattan).
