Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-03  aulero: As stated by Razuvajev,

1) before this game no one saw the manouvre Ng6-Ne7-Ng8-Nf6 to dislodge the annoying Knight in e4;

2) neither before, nor after, one can find something similar to the manouvre Qd7-Qd8-Qb8-Qa7-Qc5-Qb4 to activate the Queen and try to obtain the advantage.

The end-game is a master piece.

Jan-17-03  ughaibu: Rubinstein was a very original player, this game is really a strategical masterpiece.
Jan-17-03  drukenknight: 40 Kh3 appears to have created some problems. what about 40 h4?
Oct-11-04  Swindler: Kmoch gives 40.c5 as best for White.

Another nice finess in this endgame is 60.Rf4+ forcing the King to d3 and therefore enabling 63....Rd7.

Jul-01-07  Karpova: Amazing game with Rubinstein making use of white's Queenside weaknesses in a highly original and logical manner - bytransferring the Queen over there via d8-b8-a7
Aug-06-12  LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:

Janowski vs Rubinstein, 1907.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF RUBINSTEIN.
Your score: 189 (par = 162)

LTJ

PS. Par is now 164

Apr-06-13  Cemoblanca: Wonderful Queen moves here:

29...Qd8
30...Qb8
31...Qa7
32...Qc5
33...Qb4

My favorite move was 36.a5! to open the useful a-line (39...Ra8!). Enjoyed the whole game & especially the endgame. A truly (endgame) masterpiece by the great Akiba.

Dec-19-15  cunctatorg: This game must become a GOTD ... and Rubinstein is the predecessor of many great players including Botvinnik, Petrosian and Karpov!!
