Présentation de l'éditeur

Jose Raul Capablanca is a chess legend, world champion and quite simply one of the greatest players in the history of the game. His achievements and seemingly effortless style of play won many admirers, and his legacy includes a treasure of instructive games. Studying Capablanca’s play is a must for any aspiring chess player. For Cyrus Lakdawala, it was a key factor in his chess development and improvement, and in this book he revisits many of his favourite Capablanca games. Lakdawala examines Capablanca’s skills in attack, defence, counter-attack, exploiting imbalances, accumulating advantages and, of course, his legendary endgame play.

Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.

* Learn from the games of a chess legend
* Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study
* Important ideas absorbed by continued practice

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Get inside the mind of Capa! 24 septembre 2012
Par R. Ingram - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you are reviewing this book chances are you already know who Jose Raul Capablanca is. But in case you don't, he was the third world chess champion (1921-1927) after defeating Emanuel Lasker in his native country Cuba. Capablanca IMO was the greatest chess player of all time (sorry Fischer and Kasparov fans). Many called his style of play "simple" but not me, he just played the most economical by not wasting or making unnecessary moves. His style was very direct. Capablanca, Move by Move is the latest book on him to be authored by Cyrus Lakdawala. But if you think this is just another book reprinting his famous games think again! Oh yes, many of his games are presented here, but what Lakdawala does here is invite the reader in a sort of 'guess the next move format'. In this way he makes the book essentially interactive with the reader. After getting you to think about what Capa's next move would be at certain points in a game, he gives you the move he made AND EXPLAINS THE REASONING WHY CAPA MADE IT. Also this is not a let's all praise Capablanca, the perfect chess player book either. Many, many games here Lakdawala is highly critical of some of the moves played by Capa and even points out a few outright blunders made by him. There's also a question and answer style format in each game where the author (rhetorically) asks questions in a given position that he feels the average player may have, then answers them for the reader, I think this is a really great way to engage the reader even further. Lakdawala breaks down the book into 5 sections. Those sections are:

1. CAPA ON THE ATTACK - In this section the author selects a handful of games that highlights Capa's attacking prowess. Capa was not known as an attacking player but when the occasion called, he was quite capable of whipping up some vicious assaults. Example game: Capablanca vs. Bogoljubow 1925 - The opening starts out normal enough with the queens gambit accepted. All is well on both sides, suddenly Capa sacrifices a bishop and all hell breaks loose. Bogoljubow desperately tries to find an adequate refutation, but the air around his king is getting mighty thin.

2. CAPA ON THE DEFENCE - You don't go eight years undefeated without being able to defend the utmost ridiculous positions and that's what we have here in this chapter. Example game: Alekhine vs. Capablanca 1927 - Alekhine was Capa's most bitter rival back in the day and there was no love between them. In this game Alekhine shocks Capa by sacrificing a bishop seemingly out of nowhere. What does he get in return for his investment? No less than four passed pawns racing up the board to the queening squares. You really have to see this. Any other player would have folded like a deck of cards, but then again, your name's not Capablanca!

3. CAPA ON EXPLOITING IMBALANCES - Capa was very good at deciphering where the weak zones on the board were (i.e areas on the board that where poorly defended, lacked the man power and could be easily overrun). Here are a selection of games that show him fully taking advantage of this predicament. Example game: Marshall vs. Capablanca 1909 - Marshall comes out swinging in this game (as he usually does) and tries to sweep Capa off his feet but Capa plays it cool and let the exchanges calmly happen. Capa notices that on the queen side of the board, Marshall has 2 pawns vs Capa's three. Unfortunately for Marshall, Capa can do math and the march is on!

4. CAPA ON ACCUMULATING ADVANTAGES - Capablanca had a distinct style of what I call incremental build up. Many of his games would appear to be dry and at some point would be declared a draw by many observers while the game was in progress. A few moves later his opponents would be turning down their king in resignation. How was Capa able to do this in a clearly drawn position? Take a closer look. The answer lies not at the end of the game, but we have to go way back to the middle game to realize that Capa had set up a long term plan almost imperceptible to the naked eye to where even one lone pawn was enough for victory. Example game: - Lasker vs. Capablanca 1921 - The game is pretty much even throughout the middle game and even material is even but THE POSITION IS NOT! Capa has a very active rook and knight versus Lasker's counter part. Inactive pieces is like waiting for a slow death, you just don't know when it's coming. Lasker needs a plan fast! Someone? Anyone?...

5.CAPA ON ENDINGS - NO ONE ALIVE OR DEAD WAS MORE DEADLY IN THE ENDGAME THAN CAPABLANCA! I WILL REPEAT, NO ONE ALIVE OR DEAD WAS MORE DEADLY IN THE ENDGAME THAN CAPABLANCA! This was the phase of the game that was Capa's bread and butter. This is how he paid the bills. So many to choose from even Lakdawala acknowledges he had a difficult time trimming down games to include in this section of the book. Even with just a few pawns on the board, Capa still found a way to work his magic.In the endgame the slightest shift of wind in the position, even the smallest misstep spelled disaster for his opponents. Example game: Nimzowitsch vs. Capablanca 1913 - Nimzo tries to get cute and exchanges down to a bishops of opposite color ending (normally a drawn game circumstance) but he forgot who was sitting on the other side of the table. Soon he finds himself not fighting for a draw, but from actually losing the game! He probably wondered what happened to his drawing plan, well I could tell him, Capablanca, that's who!

If you love chess, if you love great classic grandmaster games, if you love feeling like you can 'see' as Capablanca saw, this is a great book to have and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Breath-taking games 11 septembre 2012
Par Life of Brian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Cyrus picked an excellent assortment of games from a great chess master. Capablanca's games are certainly very under-rated as people believed they are from a different era but Cyrus himself attributes his dramatic increase in rating to studying Capablanca's games. Some of the moves in the games are really astonishing.

I like the interactive nature of the book in that Cyrus asks questions at the right juncture of the game so that we stop and think about ( not to mention admire ) the game.A great book, glossy paper and strong binding. The only glitch I spotted so far is that Game 2 was played between Capablanca and Enrique Corzo and not with Juan Corzo y Prinzipe.

I waited months for this to finally be released in the US, and I'll be spending the next few months studying it! It's almost a stand-alone manual on how to play chess. Under the "search inside this book" feature that Amazon has provided, there is a very full description of the book's contents plus many pages of actual text. (Look under the picture of the book cover at the top left of the page). All I can add to that is it's a large, easy to use book with plenty of good sized diagrams and easy to read text. Everyman and Gambit are two publishers who have shown the way in their recent releases of how chess books should be written. The move-by-move concept, the question and answer feature, and the frequent quizes make this an instructional book to study as well as being a pleasure to read. Capablanca's games will always be relevent!

I haven't read all of the book yet but have got through enough of it to know I love it!. The book is both a historical book about Capablanca and a tutorial using his brilliant games as the lessons. It is very well written and recommend it for anyone who loves chess and wants to try to improve their game.

Capablanca is a chess legend and I think this book does him justice.

This book on Capablanca would have to be one of the best books you could buy , it not only explains every move but you can actually learn a lot from the the great Cuban wizard, clear and easy to follow, nicely presented, diagrams , questions, it has all that you need, and great to study Capablanca's games, besides I think that Capablanca was the best player of all time. look no further definitely recommended.
