  TheFocus: This is match game two of a two-game match. It was played in Moscow, Russia on February 4, 1914.

Capablanca won one game and drew the second.

Capablanca began simplifying too early in this game. Bernstein had some slight chances when the draw was agreed, but he probably did not want to further test Capa in the endgame.

Mar-09-18  RookFile: Bernstein equalized easily in the opening. He was wise enough to take the draw when it was there for the taking.
