    Book DescriptionThe name of Jose Raul Capablanca (1888-1942), the third world champion, is indelibly inscribed in the annals of chess history. Capablanca's technique, intuition, remarkably quick calculation, and sense for elegant combinations made him the paragon of grandmasters during his lifetime. At the peak of his career Capablanca was almost invincible; each of his losses was regarded as a sensation. His books, articles, and lucid annotations became instant classics.

    As a star of the first magnitude, Capablanca continues to influence the world of chess. All the world champions of the late 20th century - Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian, Spassky, Fischer, Karpov, and Kasparov - have been influenced by Capablanca's original ideas.
