9780486263335: The Immortal Games of Capablanca (Dover Chess)

"Chess was his mother tongue." − Richard Réti
Undoubtedly one of the strongest players the games has ever seen, the Cuban master José Raul Capablanca (1888–1942) was renowned for his lightning-quick chess comprehension, faultless judgment, and nearly unrivaled endgame skill, qualities which enabled him to win and retain the World Championship from 1921 to 1927.
His remarkable talent is evident in this superbly annotated treasury of 113 of his greatest games, regarded as one of the classics of chess literature. Study "the chess machine" in action against a host of the world's finest layers, including Marshall, Alekhine, Nimzovich, Dr. Lasjer, Bogolyubov, Tartakower, Marocsy, Euwe, Colle, Znosko-Borovsky, and many others. Although he claimed to have learned more from his losses than his victories, Capablanca was seldom in a position to benefit from defeat. In a career that spanned over 40 years, he lost only 36 serious games.
Capablanca's success was largely due to his enormous natural talent for the game. He disliked learning chess from books and was seldom inclined to prepare for a match. He simply played. And when he did, he made it seem easy. His best games are models of beauty, economy, clarity, and imagination.
Now chess players can study his incredible prowess in this superb games collection, which also contains a revealing biography of Capablanca, his tournament and match record, and an Index of Openings. Any chess player will derive great satisfaction from this book, whether he studies the games for sheer pleasure or to increase his playing skill.

About the Author:

This is one of the first books by Fred Reinfeld, who went on to become the most prolific and popular author on chess, and became an author on other subjects as well. Reinfeld wrote more than fifty books on other subjects such as checkers, coin collecting and stamp collecting. Fred Reinfeld won the 1931 New York State Championship, with Fine finishing second. Reinfeld won their individual game. In Pasadena 1932, the strongest grandmaster tournament in the USA in the decade of the 1930s, Fine and Reinfeld both got the same score of 5-6. Fine won their individual game. However, Reinfeld did better against the higher ranked players, including a win over Reshevsky and a draw with World Chess Champion Alexander Alekhine. After that however Reinfeld only played in a few other chess events. He spent the rest of his life writing about the game, not playing it. Fine, by contrast, went on to become one of the strongest players in the world. Fred Reinfeld was born on January 27, 1910. Although Fred Reinfeld is now remembered as a writer about chess and other subjects, he was also a strong player. In the 1950 USCF Rating List he was rated number 6 in the United States with a rating of 2593. He defeated Reshevsky twice and Fine once in tournament games and drew World Champion Alekhine in the grandmaster tournament in Pasadena 1932, the strongest tournament ever played in the Western United States. Reinfeld wrote more than one hundred chess books. In his day, almost all young chess players started off on his books. Nowadays, his books are mostly out of print because they were written in descriptive notation, as this one is. Fred Reinfeld died on May 29, 1964.
