Alekhine said (paraphrase) "With his death we have lost a great chess genius whose like we shall never see again" He also said "I have never seen anyone with such a flabbergasted quickness of chess comprehension"

For students Those who are starting to study chess should go through analyzed games of Capablanca. The clarity of his logic would help them a great deal. Also, he made very few blunders- a fact which serves to make the themes of his games more easily understood.
