I am trying to find a pgn game played in the year 1925 between Jose Capablanca and Mikhail Botvinnik both former World Champions.

A then 14 year old Botvinnik defeated Capablanca in a simultaneous exhibition in only 32 moves. I tried to find this particular game in your pgn files page but I did not find it and I just wonder if it is located somewhere in your site.

Thank you, good site!

Dear viewer,

This game was not in the Capablanca's pgn list games. It has been already added into the pgn zip file and can be downloaded now.
