Place: Riga
Start date: 30 Dec. 1913
End date: 30 Dec. 1913
A single exhibition game played between these two players on this occasion, according to Walter Chan (personal communication), citing Kogan's Essays on the history of chess in the USSR (p.144). However, Hooper and Brandreth give the date as 30 Dec. 1913, while the Rigasche Zeitung of 17 Dec. 1913 says that Capablanca was to play Nimzowitsch 'this evening' ('heute abend'). Was this the same game, or another?
