GM Rustam Kasimdzhanov is joined by GMs Jan Gustafsson and Paco Vallejo as he reveals the chess secrets to be found in the games of Jose Raul Capablanca.
A supremely gifted player and child prodigy, Capablanca was known as “the machine” for his unerring play, able to beat contemporaries in blitz giving odds of 1 minute to 5. An incredible endgame player and strategist, Capablanca instinctively knew what to play.
In this series, Kasimdzhanov looks at the games we can learn the most from, both in terms of evaluating positions and finding a winning plan. You are sure to gain great insights into positional play by following the games of the great Cuban too as he seemingly never had a bad piece.
