  GrahamClayton: One of the games played during Capablanca's 103 game exhibition in Cleveland on the 4th of February, 1922.

Capablanca finished with the incredible score of +102, =1, -0.

Tarasov could not resist 31...♘d2 forking Capablanca's Queen and Rooks, but as usual Capablanca sees a couple of moves ahead.

  OhioChessFan: As well as Black played, it's almost impossible to think he'd blunder that badly. What, he thought Capa had hung an exchange? Almost as amazing is the thought process Capa must have had to play Qb3. "Set trap for patzer. Uncover the long diagonal a move after patzer takes bait. Win game 3 moves later."
