|Oct-30-05|| ||tamar: Strange lapses in an otherwise great game.
23...Re3 could have given away the win if Nimzowitsch had found 24 Nb3 equalizing.
23...Re3 looks aggressive, but momentarily blocks the bishop's pin on the ♖f2 and allows the knight to move to b3 with an attack on the ♗ as well as the ♙d5
Nimzowitsch however doesn't see it either. 24 Kg2? begs the Black Queen onto e4 with check. Rubinstein then disposes of the threat by removing the bishop to b6 next move, and all of White's chances are gone.
|Nov-26-07|| ||parmetd: This game is strange because white still had large drawing chances yet Nimzowitsch insists on throwing the game away with 28. Nxf5??|
|Dec-23-07|| ||Karpova: 27...Rc4
Emanuel Lasker: <Now 28...Bxd4, followed by 29...Re2+, is threatened. White has no valid defense, and resolves upon a desperate sacrifice.>
Savielly Tartakower: <A despairing sacrifice. If 28.Kf2 Re4, with an increase in Black's attacking resources.>

Rubenstein would play 30...Kg7 here anyway. At my level of chess I would have played on, but not against a GM.|
|Oct-21-10|| ||Sastre: Black should still be able to win after <30.Nh6+ Kg7 31.Rf7+ Qxf7 32.Nxf7 Rxd2 33.Rxd2 Kxf7 34.Rxd5 Ra4 35.a3 Ke6>.|
|Feb-02-12|| ||RookFile: tamar's comment is interesting, I'd love to see more analysis of that position.|
|Jun-12-12|| ||Anderssen99: It is a pity that the remaining moves of this beautiful game are not available. However, White is lost whatever he does, e.g. 30.Nh6+, Kg7. 31.Qxd5 (There is nothing better. If: 31.Qc1 [Threatening: 32.Rf7+ with a draw] then 31...,Be3. 32.Rxc4,dxc4. 33.Qb1,Qc6+ mates), Re1+!!. 32.Kg2 (Of course capturing the rook costs White his queen),Rg1+!! (The rook is still a "taboo"). 33.Kf3,Qe3+. 34.Kg4,Qxf4+. 35.Kh3,Qxh6+ mates.|
