Book DescriptionJose Raul Capablanca, of Cuba, was the 3rd World Chess Champion. He was considered to be a true Chess genius, a natural player that spent very little time preparing for his tournament appearances. Throughout his entire Chess career, he suffered fewer than 50 losses. In 1920, reigning World Champion Lasker resigned his title to Capablanca, saying "You have earned the title not by the formality of a challenge, but by your brilliant mastery." Capablanca refused to accept the title, demanding a match with the World Champion so that he could earn the title through victory over the Chessboard. In 1921, Capablanca had his opportunity at Havana 1921 and soundly defeated Lasker 9.0: 5.0, having won 4 games and drew 5. The feat of winning the world title without losing a game to the incumbent was truly remarkable, one that went unequalled for nearly 80 years.

This book represents the most complete collection of Jose Raul Capablanca games in the world, with all 1206 of his known games from official competition, as well as exhibitions, simuls and matches. The games have been classified by ECO Openings, Chronological Order and in Alphabetical Order. In addition, this book includes tournament cross-tables for the tournaments in which Capablanca participated, making this a must–have book for any fan of arguably the most dominate World Chess Champion ever.
