Jose Raul Capablanca: A Chess Biography by Miguel Sanchez 41pbha11

McFarland 2015

About the Book
This is the most complete and thorough biography of José Raúl Capablanca, one of the greatest players in the history of chess. Beginning with his family background, birth, childhood and introduction to the game in Cuba, it examines his life and play as a young man; follows his evolution as a player and rise to prominence, first as challenger and then world champion; his loss of the title to Alekhine and his efforts to recapture the championship in the last years of his too-short life. What emerges is a portrait of a complex man with far-ranging interests and concerns, in stark contrast to his robotic reputation as “the chess machine.”

Meticulously researched, utilizing many sources available only in Capablanca’s home country, it puts truth to legend regarding a man who stood astride the chess world in of its most dynamic and dramatic eras. Numerous games and diagrams complement the text, as do a wealth of photographs.

About the Author(s)
Miguel A. Sanchez, a journalist and historian in Cuba, also wrote several other books about Cuban contemporary history. He lives in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.

Thanks to latrommi610, to Miroslav and to jiri for this very important biography of one of the truly great chess world champions (along with Alekhine, Botvinnik, Fischer, Kasparov...) sunny

The original link is still alive, but it leads to a VERY bulky PDF version (77.9 mb),
The link to the small version is broken, so here is the small version I have (6.7 mb):

Of course, one could argue forever about the identity of the greatest world champions, but it is always good to rely on research and data. And modern research shows that among all the world champions, it was Capablanaca's moves which resembled most the moves of today's super-computers, rated well over 3000 Elo! Exclamation

"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.


Jose Raul Capablanca is widely regarded as the strongest chess player in the history of the game, prior to Bobby Fischer. Capablanca became the World Chess Champion in 1921 by beating Emanuel Lasker. He lost the title in 1927 to Alexander Alekhine. Even after his loss, most believed that Capablanca was still the better player. However, Alekhine refused to give him a rematch, a subject that is still controversial and discussed today. Alekhine would not even play in the same tournament with Capablanca until Alekhine lost the world title to Euwe in 1935, following which Alekhine could no longer keep Capablanca out. 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.
