    Capablanca Gems 201

    Jose Raoul Capablanca, the Cuban chess genius, had an unbelievable tournament and match record.  He was the World Champion for many years, easily defeating Emanuel Lasker.  He lost in an upset to Alexander Alekhine in 1927 but his chess legacy will live forever.  He had impeccable endgame technique and a superb grasp of where the pieces should go in any situation.  Here are ten Capablanca Gems taken from his long career.
