Capablanca vs. Tartakover title

This game, from the book “Sixty Two Materpieces of Chess Strategy” by Irving Chernev, shows the great Jose R. Capablanca playing against Sawielly G. Tartakover with a magic formula for conducting a Rook and Pawn ending: seize the seventh rank with your Rook, and advance your King to the sixth! Capablanca’s clear-cut, methodical play is so easy to understand that the whole ending is a marvellous piece of instruction, and a thing of beauty as well.
