Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-07  Maynard5: This is quite an interesting game, which goes through several phases. The first stage is a classic minority attack in the Queen's Gambit Declined. White's positional advance is more powerful than Black's counterplay on the kingside. This phase culminates in White winning the weak pawn on c6, while holding off the attack on his own king. But then, Rubinstein comes up with an inspired defensive idea, giving up the exchange in order to remove most of White's remaining pawns. In the resulting endgame, Black has a knight and two connected passed pawns against a rook, while White's pawn on the h-file is vulnerable. Bogolyubov in turn finds an inspired winning idea, sacrificing his h-pawn, and luring Black's king into a mating net.
Aug-30-07  paladin at large: Very interesting game. Could Black have saved it with 76. ....Nh1?
