In the year 1927, the great non-studying Chess genius Jose R. Capablanca lost his world championship title to the ever-studying Chess genius Dr. Alexander Alekhine. With a record breaking 25 draws, Alekhine won 18.5 - 15.5. It was the longest world
championship match in the history of Chess. Although Capablanca was obviously the entitled challenger to the world
championship, Alekhine refused to play against him again and instead played
Efim Bogoljubov and Max Euwe
for the world title.
