Default Capablanca Simul

In a simul against Capablanca in 1933 Mary Bain won her game in 11 moves.
Does anyone have the moves from this game?

Jon Haskel


Capablanca,J - Bain,M [C48]
Hollywood blindfold Hollywood, 21.05.1933

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bb5 Bc5 5.0-0 0-0 6.Nxe5 Re8 7.Nd3 Bd4 8.Ne2 Rxe4
9.Nxd4 Nxd4 10.Ba4 Ne2+ 11.Kh1 Nxc1 0-1

I'd note "blindfold"

According to Chess Life & Review, January 1973 it is claimed that when
Capablanca resigned at move 12, Black 'would not accept victory and
conceded the game as a draw. Raul graciously accepted'

I wonder if Capa took a "dive" for some ones daughter or wife? In the final
position, Capa only a piece down (and it took some real work to hang that
piece). A piece down, I think Capa would score 99.5% against us mortals.

Depends on the mortal- I certainly know he'd (Capablanca)have no chance

against me a piece
down in a simul.

John Fernandez


Isn't that somewhat akin to Stan's claim that he is undefeated against
Fischer?

:-)

Maybe; I'd bet on Capa to draw or win.
