Here's a nice little game played by Capablanca. He forces his opponent to keep warding off threats from both sides of the board in the opening, which he handles in a very modern style. Eventually, he is able to create a passed pawn, and some quick sacrifices allow it to make its way to the eighth rank.

Also, Capablanca went through this tournament with a score of 13-0-0.
