Jose Raul Capablanca is a chess legend, world champion and quite simply one of the greatest players in the history of the game. His achievements and seemingly effortless style of play won many admirers, and his legacy includes a treasure of instructive games.
Studying Capablanca’s play is a must for any aspiring chess player. For Cyrus Lakdawala, it was a key factor in his chess development and improvement, and in this book he revisits many of his favourite Capablanca games.
Lakdawala examines Capablanca’s skills in attack, defence, counter-attack, exploiting imbalances, accumulating advantages and, of course, his legendary endgame play.
