May-30-07  paladin at large: Countless victories to his credit here - but, look at who he played.

Vázquez was one of the strongest players in the Havana Chess Club in the late nineteenth century and to him goes the credit of publishing Capablanca's first surviving game, played on 17 September 1893 when Capa was two months short of his fifth birthday. The opponent was Ramón M. Iglesias, who gave him queen odds. Vázquez reported that Iglesias played without the intention of beating Capa at all costs, but giving him opportunities to display his talent and resources. Vázquez was already reporting in articles (1893-1897) that Capa was one of the greatest gifts of the nineteenth century, claiming that the little boy was able to understand intricacies that Philidor, Labourdonnais, Deschapelles and Morphy did not demonstrate they understood until they were past ten years of age.

I do not have the Capablanca-Iglesias game from 1893, which is apparently the only extant Capablanca game from the nineteenth century. (Source - Winter)

  Benzol: <paladin> If I remember that game was in the database but it has been removed subsequently. Perhaps its authenticity is in doubt?
May-31-07  paladin at large: <Benzol> I have no idea. Perhaps <> can comment.

Winter reported: "The score was published by Andrés Clemente Vázquez in his chess column in El Figaro of 8 October 1893 (pages 431-432), which also dealt with a Mexican chess prodigy, Andrés Ludovico Viesca (born 1869)."

Aug-11-10  David2009: <Benzol>: The Iglesias-Capablanca odds game from 1893 is back in the database - R Iglesias vs Capablanca, 1893

  GrahamClayton: Andres Clemente Vasquez (1844-1901) was Mexican champion, and Mexican consul-general in Havana. As well as playing a match with Lasker, Vasquez played casual games with Mackenzie, Steinitz, Blackburne, Chigorin and Gunsberg. Vasquez published a monthly chess magazine in Cuba called "El Pablo".

Perhaps someone who can read Spanish will write a bio of this interesting man.

Mar-01-16  SBC: <Vasquez published a monthly chess magazine in Cuba called "El Pablo".>

That would be Andrés Clemente Vázquez's "El Pablo Morphy."

Mar-29-16  zanzibar: His library has been cataloged and published here:

Apr-01-16  SBC: <Zanzibar>

Thanks. That's a help to me.
