Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-29-03  ughaibu: According to the database this is the only game between these two, as Capablanca won the tournament there's no need to consider collateral form unless there are grounds to doubt the value of the form.
Aug-29-03  pawntificator: No one, I hope, really believes that Teichmann was a better player than Capablanca. That wasn't the point. But you must know that, ughaibu. Just admit that Fischer is the best at chess and be done with it ;)
Aug-29-03  ughaibu: I disagree, Marnoff Mirlony is the best.
Aug-29-03  pawntificator: Please direct me to a website containing some of Eminem's chess games, so that I may make a thorough analysis of his games and enter him into my consideration for best chess player. Because truthfully, if he plays chess half as well as he debates, well then, uh...well... hmmm.

Gosh. Momma said if you ain't got nuffin nice tuh say, don't say nuffin. But really now, no holocaust? Gimme a break.

I'm sorry chessgames. I know I shouldn't be spreading this junk around to other threads. Dang it.

Aug-30-03  Calli: Yes, much "junk" being spread. Or is that shoveled. :-o

Anyway, this is not the only game that Capablanca met Teichman. He played him on his European Tour in 1913. Capa won the mini-match 2-0.

Aug-14-07  whiteshark: <Virtually all of Capablanca’s serious (i.e. tournament and match) games are extant, a rare exception being his draw against Richard Teichmann at San Sebastián on 14 March 1911. <Although it lasted about 20 moves, only the first eight are known.>>

<Jacques Mieses> states <that the game-score was mislaid>.

<Even so, it is surprising that no complete record of the game from this major tournament has ever come to light.>

According to Edward Winter, Unsolved Chess Mysteries

Oct-23-07  capablancakarpov: <whiteshark> Yes, you are right, the game-score is incomplete, it lasted about 20 moves, Capablanca never played 10 moves Grandmaster draws.
Feb-23-09  Dredge Rivers: I don't care what Dick Van Patten says, eight isn't nearly enough!
Mar-25-09  WhiteRook48: Capablanca drawing early? Weird.
