  chancho: Jose Raul Capablanca's record:

<+377 -47 =265 (73.9%)>

Compare that to Garcia Martinez's (The first Cuban to obtain the GM title from FIDE) <+46 -136 =137 (35.9%)>.

He has about the same number of wins that Capa had in total losses for his entire career.

Ouch!

Nov-29-16  technical draw: By the way the movie "Born on the Fourth of July" is not about this Cuban GM.
