great technique...but complicated for intermediate players
Excellent explanation of this Capablanca game!
Truly a great series that I learned a lot from.
I will have to check out your other Greatest Chess Minds series as well.
What about Alekhine or Petrosian or some modern greats such as recent or current world champions......
Thank you, i noticed that im getting somehow better in endgames after watching this series as well Rubinstein series ;-)
Thanks for showing us such a great series of games by Capablanca!!
Make a video about ur self and ur games please
Yes, this is of course winning as well. I do not understand though why do not you like the otehr plan?
Fantastic video Dejan, thank you for sharing this.
This was a great series! Really enjoyed the candid analysis. Thanks a lot!
is this thel last one on capablanca?
1... Bd5 is indeed more active, but I see no way to stop White's winning plan anyway. And it seems as WillyViking is also right, his idea should win as well. I guess that Capablanca was concentrated in what he was doing and he knew his plan was winning- so he was not looking for a better one.
thankyou for the great video series, Capablanca made those positional wins look very easy, and yet I know I would struggle converting those positions into wins, so it was incredible to see how easy he could make it seem.
In the second game at around 15:40 the move Nb5+! going after the pawn at d6 would win the game much faster, how come it wasn't played?
In the first game, wouldn't 1...Bd5 be much more active for black (compared to the ...Bd7 he played)?
Thanxs for a great series about this unique player.Enjoyed it very much!
by GM Dejan Bojkov
GM Bojkov completes his epic 13-part series with two more great wins from the endgame maestro Capablanca. In the first example, the Cuban world champion centralizes his forces before marching his extra pawn to victory against Ragozin. In the second, Capablanca's king goes on a sojourn before he carves out openings in an otherwise blocked position against Ravinsky.
