    However, I am quite clueless on Capablaca

  • #5

    Capablaca was the neutral twin of Casablanca

  • #6

    But what about Casablanca?

    Or are you on iPad like me and autocorrect did that for you

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

    Class e? O.o

    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.

    Tal later broke Capa's undefeated streak and only took 2 years to do it !  Capa didnt play many games per year during his undefeated streak , obviously .

    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).
