  Gilmoy: Too hasty: <22.Rd3??> Qxa1+ :)

So White moves the QR first. 20.Rac1 (now d4 is poisoned, and Nb6-b7 are skewerable, so not Qb2) Qa5 21.Rc7, or 20.Rab1 Qc7 21.Rb3, with compensation. With a 3-on-1 K-side attack in progress, White would gladly sac a pawn for a rook lift.

Rubinstein agreed that his h7 was too weak for any pawn-grubbing.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Oops.
Feb-07-15  Bartacus: The tournament book gives 29...Be4! leaving Black with the better game. The main point is 30 Be4 Re5!, and White can't capture on e5 twice due to the rook on d1 being unprotected. I really like how ...Be4! exploits the weaknesses in White's game.
Jan-19-18  cwcarlson: 29...♗e4 30.♖g3 ♖d4 31.♖b1 ♖cd5? (31...♕d8 -+ Houdini) 32.h3= Tartakover; 30.♕h4! ♔f8 31.♕e4! ♘e4 32.♖h8 ♔e7 33.♖d8= Houdini.
