I was a chess player but mostly journalist when I lived in Cuba. En 1967 I did write a biography about Jose Raul Capablanca "Capablanca Leyenda y Realidad", that won the National Literature Prize in 1976. Actually I live en United States and don't play chess

   Nov-07-17 Jose Arango Casado
machuelo: I'm loocking for Dr. José Arango Casado, who played this game with Robert Fischer. As a young person Arango algo witness the game Fischer-José R. Florido, Havana 1956. Until a just few years ago, Arango lived in Havana. If somebody knows about him, please tell him to communicate ...
   Oct-27-17 J Barreras vs E Schlosser, 1964
machuelo: José Luis Barreras llamaba a esta artrofia degenerativa de los peones de no moverse más allá de una casilla en su primera jugada "Apertura Barrerovsky", lo mismo podría haberla llamado "La Conga Tunera", por ser él de la ciudad de Las Tunas, en Cuba. En los torneos de partidas ...
   Oct-24-17 Fischer vs E Jimenez Zerquera, 1966
machuelo: Good comment by the Crusher. I dot not think that any IM got 3 draws of 4 games against Fischer.
   Oct-06-17 Dr. Juan Carlos Gonzalez de Vega (replies)
machuelo: Sorry about my comment on Dec.18.16. There are several games of Dr. Gonzalez during the Capablanca Memorial 1962, but not his victory against Polugaevsky in the same tournament.
   Jun-22-17 Havana (1965)

   May-01-17 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1913 (replies)
machuelo: According to Nimzo's biographers this was a light game and not a exhibition game with clock. Remember that in 1913-1914 Capablanca played a group of exhibition games witch clock against Mieses, Teichmann, Alekhine, Znovsko-Borovsky, Dus-Khotimirsky, Bernstein, Tartakower, Reti and ...
   Feb-19-17 Fischer vs E Jimenez Zerquera, 1970 (replies)
machuelo: Eleazar drew three times with Fischer and lost only one game, during Chess Olympics of 1966. From where Knight13 took the 'overal record +5 -53 =40? Most probably the first game (or games) Jimenez-Fischer was in 1956 during a rapid transit match between the Log Cabin Chess Club of ...
