Thank you Coach Dejan.
His style was amazing! Great video and analysis to go with it
I really love Dejan's videos, they are so clear and lucid bringing the plans and ideas alive.
its very illuminating. usually in all books they say black is ok with doubled pawns because of the rooks activity (in nearly similar posiitons i can´t remember). its hard to find out on your own what does it mean, but now you see this game and all of a sudden, yes i understand.
Wow, that's called being outplayed. Amazing play from Capa, it just looks so easy, but it's so unavoidable almost. Janowski just looked like a bad player in this game. Must have been daunting to be on the opposite side of the board of Capablanca.
Excellent lesson. Thanks.
Capablanca was a true chess genius. Chess was so much better back then.
Thank you for your feedback and comments!
Beautiful game-thank you for showing/explaining it to us ! Great work!!
i really enjoyed the video, thank you that you took time to reply to my post.
You are right- the moves that Capablanca played were usually extremely easy to find in hinsight. But the logical sequence was the thing which made the difference.
Larsen once said that the difference between a GM and a good player is not the fact that they make good or bad moves, but in the frequency of the good moves.
I said that Capablanca played for a win as he had other obvious continuations which could have "dried" the position and force a draw.
but why did you say he played for a win, he just played the best positional moves.. i mean even if he played for draw wouldnt that have been the correct moves to make?
the ironic think is that it alltotally logical and its seems like the most normal and obvious moves to make when you look at it in hindsight.
The entire game was awesome, i probably saw many capablanca games but this was hands done one of the most interesting to me. Also you did a great job explaining. interesting i saw the move b4 but i didnt see the follow up. Yes the bishop back was really tough to see, i think its because everyone says be agressive dont waste time, develop fast you would never think of such a move.

In what would become one of the most infamous maneuvers/decisions of his career, Capablanca played the surprising retreat 10... Bd7! against Janowski, shocked the world, and went onto completely outplay his opponent with the black pieces. Today the 3rd World Champion puts on a clinic, and gives birth to the technical idea of the Principle of Two Weaknesses. Enjoy GM Bojkov's review of this legendary game...
