The Study of games between great chess players from the past has been recommended by the best coaches around the world. But, how do we actually benefict from this games? It's not easy to answer this question. The tactics and strategies that are very common today were played for the first time more than 100 years ago, and they were more comprehensible and clear. In other words, It's essential to get a wide knowledge of Chess Culture. This knowledge will be of great utility in our games because we won't have to discover by ourselves some of the diverse methods of the fight over the board. It is obvious to mention that this "weapon" is only achieve with a constant and systematic study of the most memorable Masters. I am going to show you a classic game played by the GM Capablanca in the year 1914 against David Janowsky, where Capablanca uses typical methods of attack (but remember back in 1914 this wasn't very popular!).
