Aug-06-07  RookFile: Rubinstein made it look so easy.
Aug-06-07  Atking: yeah... so deep so beautifull 3.e3, 6.f3, 11.f4, 13.e4, 19.e5, 23.f5 and 26.f6! game over. As always Rubinstein's delicate touch.... Black 6...c5 did almost nothing during... May be 6...g6!? was waiting for hypermodern theory.
Aug-07-07  benjinathan: Yes 11.f4 was stunning to me. I would simply never have played it.
Dec-18-11  PYCJacobson: <benjinathan: Yes 11.f4 was stunning to me. I would simply never have played it.> same here
Jul-16-15  fispok: 11.f4 increases control of the center, the alternative 11.e4 controls less.
Jul-16-15  JimNorCal: Wait. This is annotated by Levinfish from *his* book of best games?
