  TheFocus: This game was one of ten exhibition games Capablanca played on his 2nd South American Tour.

This game was played in Buenos Aires, Argentina on September 1, 1914.

Apr-25-19  Plakkiecake: Another example of Capablanca's relative strength compared to his contemporaries. After Black's weak 11. ... f6? Capablanca came at him like a pitbull and never let go, while showing his tactical prowess.

  master8ch: Capablanca missed 29.Qa6+ Kb8 30.Ba7+ Ka8 31.Qxc6mate.
Apr-25-19  john barleycorn: <master8ch> nice observation. Relativates Capablanca tactical prowess a bit.
Apr-25-19  RookFile: In other words, Capa played a forced checkmating sequence, but there was a shorter one available.
