Nov 12, , AM 0 Capablanca was a World Chess Champion and one of the greatest players in chess history, yet he wrote very little about the game. Chess Fundamenta ls, though normally for the beginning player, contains valuable insights th at will benefit players at all levels of understanding, including masters.
Capablanca is widely regarded as one of the all-time great chess players, and possibly the greatest natural chess genius in history. His games were the greatest influence on modern great world champions Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov. Some chess books never go out of fashion. As the text on the back of the David McKay printing of the book pointed out: This famous chess manual by one of the all-time chess greats is simplified by diagrams and illustrated by eighteen complete games; it has introduced thousands to one of the oldest and most fascinating games in the world.
Not too long ago, the book was brought up-to-date for the computer generation by Tim Sawyer, who translated it to ChessBase format for Chess Central. The digital version as great quality and is very easy to use even for beginners who never used any chess software, although for my experience I tend to get best results by going through the book then by using software of any kind.
This book is a must have for any serious chess enthusiast and you can find a copy cheap at Amazon! Our Rating.

The first game was drawn and Capablanca won the second and third games. Capablanca was now recognized as a serious contender for the world championship.
