Capablanca
Compiled by Zebra
--*--

I think the title of this one pretty much explains itself! I am normally drawn to more tactical players, but Capablanca's endgame play has a beauty all of its own. Many of the games feature in Irving Chernev's book, Capablancas's Best Chess Endgames.

The absolute seventh
Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924  
(A40) Queen's Pawn Game, 52 moves, 1-0

The Knight Wheel (first time seen in actual play)
Capablanca vs Yates, 1924 
(A48) King's Indian, 77 moves, 1-0

A fierce tussle, with passed pawns beating a bad bishop
Capablanca vs Lasker, 1924 
(D10) Queen's Gambit Declined Slav, 50 moves, 1-0

Pawn breakthrough
Capablanca vs A G Conde, 1919 
(C79) Ruy Lopez, Steinitz Defense Deferred, 46 moves, 1-0

"Passed pawns are criminals which must be kept in chains"
Capablanca vs Reti, 1924 
(C14) French, Classical, 36 moves, 1-0

A zugzwang classic
Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1927  
(B12) Caro-Kann Defense, 46 moves, 0-1

Opposite coloured bishops, must be a draw ;-)
Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1913 
(C50) Giuoco Piano, 64 moves, 0-1

A typical Scheveningen, with a classic queen ending thrown in
Lasker vs Capablanca, 1936 
(B58) Sicilian, 54 moves, 0-1
