World Champion Capablanca - Chess Biography Software CD
World Champion CapablancaThe Cuban Jose Raul Capablanca, World Chess Champion 1921-1927, was considered at the height of his career to be almost unbeatable and received the nickname: "the chess machine." Even those of his colleagues who reached the chess throne would call him a "genius" (Alekhine) or "the greatest player in the history of chess" (Fischer). This CD came into being as a result of the co-operation between various authors.
