      Jose Raul Capablanca - Third World Chess Champion
      The 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.

      Bobby Fischer for Beginners
      The Most Famous Chess Player Explained
      Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

      Capablanca - A Primer of Checkmate
      Jose Raul Capablanca is renowned for his exquisite positional play and flawless endgame technique. But "The Chess Machine" was also a master of that other way to deliver mate: the attack on the enemy king. In this groundbreaking work, award-winning chess coach and author Frisco Del Rosario shines a long-overdue light on this neglected aspect of Capablanca's record. He illustrates how the Cuban genius used positional concepts to build up irresistible king hunts, embodying the principles of good play advocated by the unequaled teacher, C.J.S. Purdy.
