It was not Aron Nimzovitch who said that Jose Capablanca was to weak to play in the San Sebastian Tournament.

It was Ossip Bernstein who Capablanca beat in the 1st round.

Dear viewer,

Thank you for your correction.

Ossip Bernstein initially objected to the inclusion of Jose Capablanca in the match complaining that such a weak player should not have been included.

Capablanca not only slaughtered Bernstein in the first round, but won the brilliancy prize of 500 Francs for this game and the tournament!

Thank you for visiting us,
