  MissScarlett: Another Capa game of unknown provenance; I assume it's a simul. Your help is appreciated.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: This game can be found in Rogelio Capparo's book on Capa in the informal games section.

Played in Moscow 7/10/1925

The opponent is named Lyubitel.

  chancho: There are two other Capa games played on the date posted above.

Vassily Panov and someone named Baum.

Panov won his game.

  MissScarlett: Capa wasn't in Moscow in October. Probably a mix-up with November 7th:
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: So it's 7/11/25 then.

365Chess has the wrong date as well:

  MissScarlett: Caparros is reliable only as to the game scores themselves (I can think of but a single error). The question is whether it's churlish to criticise his sloppiness and lack of detailed sources, given the vast amount of work involved in such a compilation. Alas, the printed word casts a spell that tends to dull our critical faculties.

  chancho: Winter's standards for complete accuracy are hard to match.

He can do it consistently.

The rest of us mere mortals make mistakes.

It is what it is...
