Description

Former world champion José Capablanca’s introduction to chess, available for the first time in English in algebraic notation, is an ideal first chess book for players of all ages. In systematic fashion, Capablanca lucidly explains the rules and basic principles of this fascinating game, and illustrates these with a wide range of practical examples. 

 

Topics covered include: 

- The game, the pieces, their moves and object . 

- Improving your game . 

- Elementary opening principles

....and much more 

 

After capturing the world championship in in 1921, Capablanca was for a time regarded as practically invincible. Although he surprisingly lost his title to Alexander Alekhine in 1927, Capablanca remained a leading player until his death in New York in 1942.
