   Sep-28-19 Marshall vs Lasker, 1940
AlbertoDominguez: Correct, this is often cited as the last game between them (including the Hannak biography of Lasker), but the last game was the second match game the next day.
   Sep-22-19 Spassky vs Botvinnik, 1970 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: At Palma 1970, Fischer had achieved clear firsts with a few rounds to go, but he just kept winning game after game. Also, it's worth noting that this was to be Botvinnik's last official game.
   Nov-18-18 Capablanca vs J Bernstein, 1913 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: TheFocus is incorrect. The match in Moscow 1914 was against OSSIP Bernstein. This is a game against JACOB Berntein in a New York 1913 tournament. However, I believe there is an error in the date. Khalifman's edition of Capa's games shows this as round 3 on 7/8/1913 rather ...
   Nov-04-18 Capablanca - Corzo (1901)
AlbertoDominguez: Surely, the statement "Corzo would certainly rank as a candidate for master class" understates his strength. According to Chessmetrics, Corzo had a performance rating of 2421 in Havana 1913. He scored 1.5/2 against Jaffe and draws against Marshall and Janowski.
   Sep-30-18 Harrwitz vs Loewenthal, 1853 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: According to Zenon Franco, this was game 18 of the match.
   Jul-22-18 Botvinnik vs Y Rokhlin, 1927 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: Soltis has an interesting story about this game in his biography of Botvinnik.
   Jul-02-18 N Whitaker vs Capablanca, 1913 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: <Whitaker overlooked an easy draw towards the end: 63.Qxh3+!> According to Chess Stars, this draw was not there because Capa's previous move was 62....Bf5, rather than 62....Bc4 given above.
   Jul-02-18 Quadrangular Masters (1913) (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: Fun Fact: Duras is the only participant who never defeated Capablanca.
   May-19-18 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: <<Stonehenge>> I can't be 100% sure, but I am fairly certain that the picture is actually of Reshevsky. It's blurry, but it looks like the signature sailor suit he used for simuls as a child. It doesn't look very much like ...
   Apr-21-18 E Corzo vs Capablanca, 1902 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: According to every other source I've seen (Edward Winter, Hooper & Brandreth's The Unknown Capablanc, Reinfeld's The Immortal Capablanca, Panov's book, Linder's recent book on Capa, Lakdawala's Move by Move book, and the Chess Stars collection of Capa's games), White in ...
