I've moved the information about the Project methodology and the secondary data relating to the error weighting of each game to User: game mapping project. Analysis and preliminary conclusions of the outcomes of the Project so far are still underway. Links to the posts that record the results of the mapping and analysis of the 1910 and 2008 World Championship matches are also at that site.

The Project will continue with game mapping of the Lasker-Capablanca World Championship Match (1921) and the Kasparov-Kramnik World Championship Match (2000).

<Equipment>:

Since completing the first part of the Project, mapping the 1910 and 2008 world championship matches, hardware and software have been upgraded for the next part of the Project involving the 1921 and 2000 matches. For the duration of this phase of the Project, equipment will consist of an Intel i5 CPU 760 @ 2.80GHz with 3.46GB of RAM, and a 1.024GB hash tables setup. Shredder 11 has been replaced by Deep Shredder 12.

<Methodology>

The dual sliding methodology described at User: game mapping project is being retained, except that every move will be evaluated (at least twice) at <20 ply> in lieu of the twice+ <16 ply> benchmark set for the first phase of the Project.

<Rubinstein Project>

The following is my suspended project in respect of the late great Akiba Rubinstein.

***
Akiba Rubinstein is my subject of study.

For an excellent short biography, and a collection of games by this great master, including his matches against Schlechter, Bogolyubov and Marshall, click on <Archives> collection at Game Collection: Akiva Rubinstein. For other information about Rubinstein's life and times, the bio (including links) on his player page, and discussion under that bio provides considerable information. In addition, User: Anyi 's website at http://rubina.yfw24.de/ is dedicated to Rubinstein, and User: RubinsteinLife is some additional information by User: Karpova.

However, the best overview of Rubinstein and Polish chess during his lifetime can be found at <jessicafischerqueen>'s excellent three part YouTube documentary starting here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi3h....

Rubinstein's record against the best players of his day is impressive. The only player to have proved to have had Rubinstein's full measure was that dark genius, Alexander Alekhine . Alekhine beat Rubinstein 8 to 5 (thanks <Karpova>), with 2 draws. (Rubinstein won their first four games). Even so, it's worth noting that Alekhine only gained his ascendancy during their last few games when Rubinstein was well and truly succumbing to his problems and Alekhine was at his peak, leading up to and subsequent to winning the world championship.

The only other player to have a plus score against Rubinstein (apart from the odd one-off game) was Emanuel Lasker with 2 wins against 1 loss, with 3 draws. Their final game gave Lasker the edge.

This site has been set up to store the some of the information from my Project concerning Akiba Rubinstein, while I complete my Game Mapping Project that I'm running on my forum and in my bio. - User: bridgeburnerr
