|Nov-02-03|| ||ughaibu: This is the earliest Rubinstein-Schlechter game in this database. |
|Apr-03-05|| ||vonKrolock: It was actually the first Game between them. Schlechter won this Tournament at Ostende 1906 (2nd Maroczy, 3th Rubinstein, 4th-6th Burn, Bernstein, Teichmann, 7th Marshall, 8th Janowsky, 9th Perlis)
Commenting on this Game, Lasker wrote: "The finish shows clearly Schlechter's skill in charming out an attack from almost nothing" |
|Apr-10-05|| ||vonKrolock: Schlechter's score in Ostende 1906, where he was the sole winner: +15/=12/-3. Spielmann refers to this performance as the begining of his best period, that includes the victories in Vienna 1908 and Prag 1908 (shared) and in Hamburg 1910 (alone). This Game is absent from Spielmann's Schlechter-book, consequently lacking also in the Russian version from 1985, but, providencially, finely reported in Fred Wilson's "Lesser Known Chess Masterpieces", a Dover book from the mid 70's |
|Apr-10-05|| ||paladin at large: 7. f4 would seem a bad move in retrospect, since Rubinstein is unable to get an attack rolling on the kingside and Schlechter is able to fix the weak white pawn on e3, which also hinders Rubinstein's lateral communication between king and queenside. The white queen is shut out of the kingside, whereas black's queen threatens to go to either side. |
|Aug-12-10|| ||TVik: Hi all! This is my first post:
In Schlechter's line beginning with 29.Nxg4! Rxb2 30.Ne5 Rb4 31.Rg8 Rc8 32.Nxc4 Rxc4 33.Kb2. Is not 32.Nd7+ Ka8 33.Rxc8# an improvement for white?
|Aug-12-10|| ||vonKrolock: Yes, something is not matching here - Schlechter would not overlook a mate in two, moreover in his notably accurated analysis lines|
|Aug-12-10|| ||Shams: <TVik> Welcome, and please post more! As first posts go that was unusually substantive. :)|
|Aug-12-10|| ||OhioChessFan: Not to mention another 2 mover:
32. Rxc8 Kxc8 33. Rg8++
|Aug-12-10|| ||TheFocus: <TVik>< Hi all! This is my first post:|

It is a misprint in Lasker's note. It should be 31...Kc8 instead of 31...Rc8. Deutsche Wochenschach had the correct move of 31...Kc8, so no mate was missed by Schlechter.

No, second game. The first was a draw. No game-score exists of it though.
|Aug-12-10|| ||OhioChessFan: 30. b3 and isn't White still breathing?

|Aug-12-10|| ||OhioChessFan: In the above, every line I try, the extra Pawn for Black ends up being the Rook Pawn. Rubinstein with 2 Rooks, defending? I like 30. b3 a lot better than Lasker's alternative 30. Rxg4.|
|Aug-12-10|| ||ounos: I don't like the implication of the last annotation. Could it mean that Akiba played on?? :)|
|Aug-13-10|| ||vonKrolock: <<TheFocus> < Second game> ... <No game-score exists of it though.>> We should develop an ontology capable of including categories of non-existent objects - (just kidding, mate - my flawed assertion came from a period when researches on matters like Ostende 1906 and Schlechter's bio were not advanced enough. Still, <<<the first Game between them <with the moves available >>(second corrected edition of a 2005 cg.com comment)|

I've only looked for a couple moments but it seems like white is forced to trade rooks on g2, and black will liquidate on d4 keeping his e4 pawn.
