Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-23-02  bishop: After 27...Nxc5, Black with one extra pawn and two connected passed pawns looked like he was winning. It seems that Reti lost because he did not handle his passed pawns vigourously enough while Rubinstein quickly used his pawn majority on the kingside.
Dec-21-04  euripides: 39...Nc5 may be a time trouble error. Reti could play 39... Rxf5 when 40 Bxe4 ? loses to 40 ... Rf4+, 40 Rxe4 should win for Black after 40... de 41 Rxc6+ Kxc6 42 Bxe4+ Kd6 43 Bxf5, and 40 Kg4 Rg5+ looks good for Black. It's a pity, because this is a profoundly prescient game in which Reti shows the potential of active piece play in the King's Indian.
Jun-24-05  millert: 39. ... Nc5 isn't an error. In fact, it's the best move. 43. ... c5 was correct. 43. R8f7 is the mistake. This game is a double brillancy. Reti played a brilliant opening and Rubinstein played a brilliant defense.
Jun-24-05  millert: Also, Black may be able to tough out a draw after 45. Nxg6 46. fxg6 Rf8 47. Kxh6 Rxf4 48. g7. After 45. ... c5 though, White is clearly winning.
Jun-24-05  paladin at large: A beautfiul endgame by Rubinstein. He creates threats, which Reti has to parry, which enables the white king to move up the board to take a major role. He must have foreseen when he played 45. Kh5, sacrificing the exchange, that he would have 49. Be2 50. Bc4 as a resource, getting a stranglehold on the position.
