Jose Raoul Capablanca is widely regarded as the strongest chess player who ever lived prior to Bobby Fischer. The authoritative work, “The Rating of Chess Players Past and Present” by Arpad Elo, inventor of the modern rating system, ISBN 0923891277, rates Capablanca as 2725, higher than any other player in history prior to Fischer. The great thing about Capablanca's style of play is he tended to play simple, direct moves, moves that even an amateur player can find over the board. José Raúl Capablanca y Graupera was the third World Champion, reigning from 1921 until 1927. Renowned for the simplicity of his play, his legendary endgame prowess, accuracy, and the speed of his play, he earned the nickname of the "Human Chess Machine". Jose Raul Capablanca was born in Havana. Capablanca's ideas are still relevant on the world stage of chess. His images are a powerful aid to the student board secrets. In this volume Harry Golombek, the distinguished chess correspondent of the times and one of Great Britain's leading players, has bought together Capablanca's Hundred Best Games. These will provide the expert as well as the beginner with a new insight into the master's extraordinary grasp of the game's fundamental strategic principles, the brilliance of his tactical development. Golombek's clearly written notes highlight the games most crucial phases and provide the reader with many interesting clues as to possible variations.
