  Chessical: Polished positional play by Rubinstein from which we can learn a lot. Rubinstein makes Janowsky's plan of a K-side attack ineffective. Rubinstein was just as successful some twenty years later against another strong opponent:

Samisch vs Rubinstein, 1926.

By move 13 Rubinstein is fully developed and cranking up an attack on the Q-side. Janowsky has no weak points to attack, and is soon saddled with a weak pawn on c3. This weakness takes all of the energy from Janowsky's position.

  Honza Cervenka: Both 42.Kh3 Rh2+ 43.Kg4 Rag2+ 44.Kf3 Rh3+ and 42.Kh1 Rgd2 43.Qb1 (43.Qf1 Rh2+ 44.Kg1 Rag2+ 45.Qxg2 Rxg2+ 46.Kxg2 exf5 ) 43...Rh2+ 44.Kg1 Rag2+ 45.Kf1 Rh1+ lead to loss of Queen.
Oct-13-10  Sularus: 13. ... Ke7 just ruins White's plans of storming black's king side. lol
