Nov-07-13  Caissanist: IM Nikolai Minev has a nice article on this match at Chesscafe:

Nov-07-13  Caissanist: I have updated the results table at the top of this page to agree with Minev's. The table had shown that nine games were played, although the database (and Minev's article) has only eight. The "missing" (probably nonexistent) game would have been a win for Rubinstein in the eighth (next to last) game.

  TheFocus: I have corrected the cross-table. My original cross-table had an extra win for Rubinstein. No games were missing. All of them were in Donaldson's and Minev's bios on Rubinstein.

<Caissanist> Thanks for catching that and pointing it out.

  TheFocus: I also added a link to Minev's article in the introduction.
Nov-08-13  Caissanist: You're welcome, and thank you for all your work in putting these pages up!

  Tabanus: Bio said "Played in Poland", but Poland was then split in three. Warsaw was located in Russian Poland or Vistula Land, a part of the Russian Empire.

Games: Site now has RUE.

Feb-10-18  zanzibar: Warsaw and Lodz have pretty much been the Polish center-of-gravity for over a thousand years, fwiw:
