  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Washington, D.C. on March 2, 1915.

Capablanca scored +14=1-1.

Capparos gives this as 1-0.

Caparros' result looks right to me: after 59....Rc8 60.a7 Ra8 61.Kf2, there is no hope.

  MissScarlett: Yes, a win for Capa (correction submitted). I should have noticed this because the loss and draw in this simul were accounted for by Capablanca vs Edward Beckley Adams, 1915 and Capablanca vs W Wimsatt, 1915.

The game score in the <ACB> (April, 1915, p.71), notes the cute possibility in the final position: 59...Kd3 60.a7 Ke3 61.Re4+ Kf3 62.a8(Q) Rc1+ 63.Re1+, but, of course, 61.Ra1 is simpler.
