Rubinstein plays Capablanca
Compiled by Bridgeburner
--*--

Jose Raul Capablanca was one of the very few players who held his own against Rubinstein. After Rubinstein defeated Capablanca at San Sebastian in 1911 in one of the classic games of all time, all bar one of their remaining games were drawn.

Capablanca only evened the score in Berlin in 1928, toward the end of Rubinstein's career.
