  offramp: I have commented on this game, which was game 2 of the match and played at Camp Upton, NY, 10th October 1942, at Opocensky vs Capablanca, 1939.

It is in the book <107 Great Chess Battles 1939-1945> by Alekhine & Winter.

  offramp: Another game featuring a very early ...Qf6 in the Ruy Lopez. Has this move ever turned out well?
