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.
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!
