    Capablanca in my opinion is one of the most talented players of all time.

    No, Casablanca was a class E chess player. He went into deep debt by gambling on his games.

    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.

    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).
