  Karpova: 5.nd2 recommended by dr bernstein.

8.g3! white could have played bc7: and given black counterplay. rubinstein gives a pawn to get attacking chances himself instead.

10...0-0 tartakover thought 10...bf5 was preferable.

11.nb3! rubinstein begins his play against the bb4. black should answer h6.

13.ne4! queen and bishop are attacked.

16.h3! ne5 (forced. 16...nf6? nf6:+ and black must retake with the pawn)

17.c5!! black has no defense. he starts to play nervous now.

very nice game indeed!

  Karpova: <8.g3! white could have played bc7: and given black counterplay. rubinstein gives a pawn to get attacking chances himself instead.> 8.Bxc7 Qxc2 9.g3 Nce5 10.Bxe5 Nxe5 show that Akiba was quite correct to avoid the intermediate move 8.Bxc7 and "maintain" the pawn plus.

<17.c5!! black has no defense. he starts to play nervous now.> 17...g5 wasn't good. Perhaps 17...Ng6 18.cxd6 Nxf4 19.gxf4 Rd8 (<19...Qxf4?? 20.Qd5+>) and black's king's side wouldn't have been messed up.

Hans Kmoch: <Typically Rubinstein! Instead of capturing the Queen's Bishop Pawn and giving his opponent attacking chances, he offers the sacrifice himself in order to obtain an attack as soon as possible.>

From page 162 of "Rubinstein's chess masterpieces / 100 selected games" by Hans Kmoch (translated by Barney F. Winkelmann), Dover Publications, 1941.

  FSR: <Katu> Yes, 6...Qe7 transposes to the main line, which is not too bad for Black.
