World Champion Capablanca

The 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.

Contains: A main database with all available game by Capablanca is introduced by a biography. About 300 of the games are annotated. The largest contribution to this database was made by Peter Schneider. An appreciation by Dr Robert Huebner of the 1927 WCh-Match between Capablanca and Alekhine. An endgame database by GM Mihail Marin. It contains 1 text and 14 games (or parts of games). The Romanian Grandmaster casts some light above all on the moment of the transition to the endgame. A tactics database put together by Martin Seifert. Perhaps there are not so many brilliant combinations known from CapablancaåÔs play, but these do exist. The author has put together a database of 103 games, in each of which a training question (or questions) allows you to test and improve your vision.
