Nov-14-03  Dick Brain: I can relate to this sort of game where it looks like Colle has a pretty easy win but it keeps slipping and slipping and you can end the thing until the noose is around the neck.
Sep-11-05  Paul123: I do think Colle got a slight opening advantage with 15.Ne5 but after 23. Rad1 Colle runs into a brick wall. Rubinstienís defense is impeccable. The knight at f6 is menacing as all hell, and in several lines it just fowlís my plans for white. Rubinstienís bishop dominates the black squares on the queenside and it seems he has a ready made minority attack in the works.

Apr-15-11  Dr. J: Did Black miss a quick mate by 55... Bb8 56 Kg1 Qh2+ 57 Kf1 exf3?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Doesn't 55...Bb8 simply drop an entire Queen? Perhaps you meant 56...Bb8?

The game as a whole is a one of Rubenstein's more remarkable escapes. The combination of ...e6 and ...Nbd7 was much too passive. He was dead and buried after the loss of the exchange, but Colle dithers without a plan and lets the once-great player back into the game.

Perhaps he meant 53...Bb8.
