wow.. this was very instructive for me
a nice classical win by the legendary Capablanca.Thanks for the video coach dejan.It helped me a lot. fantastic game.
Thank you Coach Dejan.
"Capa?" Where did this come from?
Capablanca was extremely creative!!
you make the best vids.keep the seires going!great work dejan.
As Richard Reti put it, " What is immediately striking, even in a superficial study of Capablanca's method of play is his great assurance and almost complete freedom from blunders. In a sense chess is his mother tongue..."
Capablanca finally arrived! I love the simplicity and effectiveness of 13 ... Nf3!Thank you and come more videos about Capablanca
I suggest the tenth game of the match Lasker - Capablanca 1921, because I think a good example of how to play against the IQP
Thank you, too!
Dejan, thank you for great work, I loved this lecture and how you broke down the conversion of queenside majority. I look forward to further lectures of this series!
good video thanks
I'm real bad at chess though I had 2nd place in a school tournament everyone still beats me on here :D
its your speakers
I really would've loved better audio.
linuxblue1, I will search for the game against Golombeck, thank for the idea!
Not in a bathtub, evan7284 but in an empty apartment But for the next videos it gets filled. I hope you all enjoyed the content though.
you make the best videos...thanks
I also don't know for certain if this is true. But I read somewhere that after any chess game Capablanca would always show the opponent there and then what all the variations were that also lost, why combinations were sound/unsound etc. Alekhine didn't do this for opponents; he just won and walked off.
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Ask and you shall receive! Our members have complained about a certain "gap" in the Greatest Chess Minds series. A giant hole that could only be filled by Jose Raul Capablanca! He has been called the most naturally gifted world chess champion of all time. A true talent! Well, Grandmaster Bojkov is not here to argue, but instead, Dejan displays one of Capablanca's signature wins over the fading Frank Marshall.
