|Feb-17-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Interesting game. Lasker annotates. |
|Feb-05-07|| ||sambo: If white seriously calculated that entire exchange, I'm beyond impressed. That's supernatural.|
|Dec-31-08|| ||PeterB: An amazing game by Rubinstein, just a complete crush. Black misplays the opening, opens himself up and it's over. Why wasn't AR a world champion!|
|Jan-18-09|| ||fredthebear: Despite Lasker's reign as world champion, it has been thought that Rubinstein was the strongest player in the world just prior to World War I. (Although international tournaments were held regularly, title matches were rather sporadic in those days, not held yearly.) The great war interrupted Rubinstein's opportunity to play for the title, and then he developed a nervous tick and was never the same. Lasker, on the other hand, played at a high level for decades, well into his 70's. Znosko-Borovsky? He wrote five informative chess books on "How to Play the ..." opening, middle game, and endgame, "The Art of Combination in Chess" and a quick read called "How Not to Play Chess." They're all still in print, probably through Dover publications.|
|Jan-19-09|| ||Anyi: After WWI Rubinstein reminded Lasker of their contract for a match, and even held a speech at a simultan display in 1920 asking for a triangular world championship match between Lasker, Capablanca, and him, (see book by Donaldson and Minev, p. 370), but at that time and onwards he had no funding for such a match (no rich industrialists supported him any more, and he had a family to support). Interested in more, <fredthebear> and <PeterB>? Come and visit my website on Rubinstein (it's in my profile, copy and paste the address if it doesn't work automatically).|
|Aug-17-09|| ||garcimitch: what a calculation from move 14 to move 24!|
|Aug-23-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 14 Nxe4 --> 24 Rf4! chess foresight!|
|Feb-07-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: A brilliant game, Tartakower praised this game and called it: "The first great example of Rubinstein's Qc2 system." |

"The Game of The Day" here soon.
|Feb-07-14|| ||MountainMatt: This is definitely impressive...and I can't help but think it was child's play to a stud like Rubinstein. I bet it took him a whole 2 minutes to calculate the result of moves 14 through 19 (at which point the game is utterly won) - on a good day, I might find it in 2 hours, if ever.|
