  Chessical: Rubinstein's postion seems to go downhill after the very sharp <17.a5>; perhaps he was trying to make too much out of rather too little from the opening. It does, however, show his confidence, and determination to win, in taking on the master tactician Janowsky.

Under pressure, Rubinstein commits a very bad error with <28.Nd6?> overlooking the loss of his R after Qh5+.

  tamar: Rubinstein games always have something of interest, even when he loses. Here on a mission to rev up his Formula 1 horsepower, he loses to carefree Janowski who darts in with his nimbler Triumph Spitfire, zipping off with the stalled out Rook on d1.
