"Capablanca, my hundred best games" there are many editions going back to 1947; most public library systems have one edition or another. Very worthwhile book.
thanks again Grandmaster Melikset
Fantastic video as always! Thank you GM Melik!
Hey! You should do a Capablanca series. I would love that, just as much as hearing your stories from your Potrosian Chess Academy days. Whatever you do, keep the videos coming and don't stop.
Very good video - most instructive one that I have yet watched re planning
Well said! A lesson many amateurs could learn from is not all trades are beneficial to the stronger side.
very nice, thank you
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
GM Khachiyan follows up his first 'Structural Thinking' video (September 8th) with a masterpiece by the legendary Capablanca. We hope you will enjoy this game and come to admire Capablanca's positional vision as much as Melik does. Try to visualize the pawn structure weaknesses (open c-file) as Melik recommends, then take notes on Capablanca's patience in shuffling the major pieces back and forth from the king-side to the queen-side. Brilliant technique!
