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!
