Jun-27-03  coke934: Jose Raul Capablanca tactics were great when he was a kid, this shows you how to get to the next class level, tactics and endgame, not openings!

  Whitehat1963: Child's play, indeed!
Jun-22-04  KingPawn: Capablanca can crush the kingsgambit and he knows how to play it right
Sep-22-05  ConfusedPatzer: Capablanca was pure virtuosity in every aspect of the game, unlike the formulaic view the 'mindlessly believe everything we read' crowd have of him being a completely positional player( if such a thing is even possible).
Aug-29-07  karik: 31. -Ba5 mates in two.
Mar-06-13  Garech: Merciless!


Nov-21-13  pradnyasoorya: Though Ba5 would have mated in two, still Capablanca played differently. This shows his deep understanding, his preparedness and his confidence of succeeding with alternatives. Just Great. Too Great.
