Capablanca in my opinion is one of the most talented players of all time.
Then who is Capablanaca?
Then who is Capablanaca?
His evil twin
However, I am quite clueless on Capablaca
Capablaca was the neutral twin of Casablanca
But what about Casablanca?
Or are you on iPad like me and autocorrect did that for you
No, Casablanca was a class E chess player. He went into deep debt by gambling on his games.
Class e? O.o
Capablanca held the world record for not losing a game for 7 years straight.
(while simultaneously playing chess very seriously during that time - otherwise, that's not a great achievement)
I went 22 straight years without losing a single game.... then I learned to play and it's been downhill ever since.
Tal later broke Capa's undefeated streak and only took 2 years to do it ! Capa didnt play many games per year during his undefeated streak , obviously .
Steinitz didn't lose for nine years, between 1873 and 1882. He played even less than Capa did 1916-24 though, so number of years undefeated doesn't mean much compared to number of games (at the highest level).
