J.R. Capablanca was a World Chess Champion and one of the greatest players in chess history, yet he wrote very little about the game.Chess Fundamentals, though normally for the beginning player, contains valuable insights that will benefit players at all levels of understanding, including masters. Capablanca explains:

·How to obtain and nurture a passed pawn
·How to get and keep the initiative
·Cardinal rules for rook and pawn endings
·How to attack using knight as the main force
·How to cut off enemy pieces

Chess Fundamentals is one of the jewels of chess literature.
