The Chess Legacy of Jose Raul Capablanca
Last Lectures is, as the name suggests, a series of lectures given over the radio by former World Chess Champion José Raúl Capablanca just a few months before he died. While he was preparing these lectures, he dictated them to his wife, Olga Capablanca, who typed them. As a result, we have them today. Perhaps more than any other player in the history of chess, Jose Raoul Capablanca was noted for his ability to cut through the complexities of modern chess theory and find the winning line in grandmaster tournament play.

Reuben Fine afirmó que Capablanca había exigido al alcalde el desalojar a todos los espectadores para que no lo vieran en el mal estado de ánimo mientras perdía.
