A Primer of Chess teaches you how to find the good moves. When it is your turn to move, your objective as a chess player should be to find a good move. If every move you play in the game is a good move, you will win, usually because your opponent will throw himself on the sword.
A Primer of Chess
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.
Celebrado En La Habana Del 15 De Febrero Al 6 De Marco De 1913
José Raúl Capablanca fue un ajedrecista cubano, campeón mundial de ajedrez de 1921 a 1927. En 1913 jugó en La Habana y terminó segundo detrás de Frank Marshall, habiendo perdido una de las partidas contra el norteamericano después de tener una posición ventajosa. 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.
Torneo Internacional De Ajedrez
This is essentially a book on chess history, showing how different styles of chess play became popular and flourished and then faded in popularity, such as for example the Hyper-Modern Style of play that became ''All the Rage'' in the 1920s and 1930s.
The Development of Chess Style
This is the masterpiece by World Chess Champion Jose Raul Capablanca who is regarded as the strongest chess player who ever lived, prior to the arrival of Bobby Fischer.World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik regarded Capablanca's Chess Fundamentals as the best chess book ever written.
Lines with P-KB4
There are two Sicilian lines where White plays an early P-KB4; 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 P-KB4 which is probably inferior to the system popularised by the Dutch player Vinken - 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 N-QB3 and 3 P-KB4. This latter system occupies most of this book. The author demonstrates the Vinken System to be a viable alternative for White in which the first player strives for a King-side attack which can so easily come off.

The main variation of the Queen's Indian arises after 1 P-Q4, N-KB3, 2 P-QB4, P-K3, 3 N-KN3, P-QN3. Since White does not threaten to play P-K4 immediately, Black is able to undertake the development of the queen side. The fianchetto of the Queen Bishop is an effort to establish control over his Q4 and K5 squares. The model games for this type of development were played by Nimzovich against Gregory and Bernstein in the period of 1913-1914.
