Feb-21-07  suenteus po 147: Was it unusual to beat Rubinstein this masterfully in the endgame?
Jun-10-07  sanyas: <suenteus po 147> Yes ;)
May-29-09  blacksburg: this is the only time rubinstein ever faced the evans gambit?

  Honza Cervenka: <blacksburg> Almost certainly not. But it is the only Evans of Rubinstein recorded in this database. It is not so surprising as Evans had got completely out of fashion just before Rubinstein started his chess career. On master level very few players used Evans in serious competitions.
May-29-09  blacksburg: how unfortunate for me. :)

the players that i have been studying trying to learn to play 1.e4 e5 as black - rubinstein, karpov, capablanca, keres - faced the ruy lopez almost exclusively. unfortunately, at my level, i see a lot more of stuff like evans gambit, max lange, scotch gambit, kings gambit, etc, than the ruy lopez. i think it would be very interesting to see in-depth how those guys dealt with things other than the spanish.

  tamar: <blacksburg> Go back just a few years and study Lasker and Tarrasch. They still faced quite a few of those openings, and their treatments pretty well killed them off from top tournament play. eg Chigorin vs Lasker, 1897
Jul-20-10  Blunderdome: It appears likely that Rubinstein actually lost this game on time before 54...Kxh3, and the rest is analysis.

White played 26. Qxe5. Stockfish 8 gives 26. Qf4 as a better move. 26. Qf4 Nxd3
27. Qc4.

Now both the knight on d3 and the bishop on c8 are attacked.

  ChessHigherCat: : I guess if 43. hxg4 Ra3+ 44. Kd2 Rxf3 45. gxf3 h3! and white is miraculously unable to stop the h pawn from queening.
