Jun-15-13  RookFile: It does not appear that 15. Bg5 did much. Maybe the immediate 15. Be3 is a slight improvement.

  tamar: Another of Rubinstein's missed opportunities. He had great positions, but failed to convert any of the first six games. In the end, Rubinstein went undefeated, but ended a half point back despite winning his individual encounter with Capablanca.

11...Ne5 12 Nxe5 Qxe5 would leave White with a precarious situation. White has no good way to keep developing.

For example, 13 Nb3 Bxf2+! 14 Kxf2 Qxh2 15 Bg5 Nh5 16 exd5 (what else? if 16 Bc2 Bh3) 16...Qg3+ 17 Kf1 Qxd3+

Or 13 Qb5 b6 14 Nb3 a6! 15 Qc6 Bxf2+ with similar play. Black can even interpolate either rook to c8 before playing the combo.

Or 13 Bc2 Rfb8 14 Nf1 b5 15 Qa6 dxe4 and Black wins the e pawn

White has some chances to save the game, but it appears either he allows his Kingside to be torn open, or goes a pawn down. Both Houdini 3 and Stockfish dd rate Black's advantage as a little under or a little over a pawn.
