Capablanca Chess is a chess variant invented by former world champion Jose Raul Capablanca. He was a strong natural talent and was beating everybody and got bored. He also thought that if grandmasters played each other they would get draws all the time. He created this variant, motivated by these things. This variant is more complex and richer. It is played on a 10x8 board and has two new pieces the archbishop, and the chancellor. The archbishop has powers of a bishop and knight. The chancellor combines the powers of the rook and knight. Suprisingly Capablanca was beaten by Maroczy at his own game. Capablanca chess has inspired a number of other variants. Hope you enjoyed this and feel free to comment!
