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.
- the main database with all available games by Capablanca, introduced by a
biography. Approximately 300 of the games are annotated. The largest
contribution to this database was made by Peter Schneider.
- an appreciation by Dr Robert Hübner 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 Capablanca‘s 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.
