Rubinstein - Schlechter Match

Akiba Rubinstein3.5/6(+2 -1 =3)[games]
Carl Schlechter2.5/6(+1 -2 =3)[games] Chess Event Description
Rubinstein - Schlechter (1918)
Rubinstein's return to the international arena, after a break of four years, saw him defeat his old rival Carl Schlechter in Berlin by 3-2.

Typically, Akiba started slowly and was a point down at the mid-point, but wins in games four and five helped him keep his undefeated match record intact.

  offramp: I could be wrong, but I thought Rubinstein never lost a match, and Schlechter only ever lost one, and this is it.
