Jose Capablanca

World Champion 1921 – 1927

 He was born in Cuba and played a lot of his adult chess in New York.  One excellent book, read by all masters today is Irving Chernev’s .. Capablanca’s best endings.  This is a must read book !!    Emanuel Lasker once said: “I have known many chess players, but only one chess genius: Capablanca.”
