Akiba Rubinstein's Best Games
Compiled by alip
--*--

The best games of Rubinstein's career.

Who is your opponent tonight, tonight I am playing against the Black pieces. - Akiba Rubinstein

60 days a year I play in tournaments, 5 days I rest, and 300 days I work on my game. � Akiba Rubinstein

Rubinstein was an artist whose masterpieces are the priceless legacy of an unhappy genius. � Reuben Fine

The games of Steinitz himself, the creator of the theory, are by no means the best demonstration of its correctness. A whole generation of chess masters extracted from this theory everything in it that is of value for practical play. Rubinstein was the central figure of this generation, and his games are the most complete embodiment of Steinitz's teaching. - Richard R�ti

He possessed almost a super-natural feeling for the endings and rook endings in particular. - Max Euwe

Better chess cannot be played by mortal man. - Reuben Fine

There is scarcely another master who suffers so from nerves, which cause him moments of complete exhaustion so that he commits crude blunders. � Richard R�ti (on Rubinstein)

Rubinstein is the rook ending of a game begun by the Gods thousands of years ago. � Saviely Tartakower

One of the greatest positional players ever, who influenced many future generations of great players, including such great scientists and champions as Mikhail Botvinnik. - Garry Kasparov (on Akiba Rubinstein)

Careful analysis shows that modern chess, proceeding from the Botvinnik era, is very strongly influenced by the games of Rubinstein, who was, essentially, one of the fathers of modern chess history. - Garry Kasparov

For the purity and logicality of his style of play, this great chess artist was compared with an ancient sculptor, whose smooth and monumental work provokes admiration. - Garry Kasparov

We should not forget Rubinstein, an incredibly talented and fantastic chess player. It is a pity that with his extensive knowledge of chess, he was not a World Champion. Sometimes he created true masterpieces and was way ahead of his time. To understand this, you should just go through the collection of his best games. Why didn't he become a World Champion? That's a mystery to me. His nerves might have played a role or he might not have been very good in practice. Anyway, he was a man of great talent. -Vladimir Kramnik
