  1. Lasker-Schlechter World Championship Match 1910
    Lasker and Schlechter were two of the greatest players of the day. Schlechter's strength has often been under estimated. My Game Mapping Project is analysing the error content of the games, and the results will be posted on my forum as they occur.
    3 games, 1910

  2. Rubinstein plays Alekhine
    Alexander Alekhine was the only player who clearly had Akiba Rubinstein 's measure. Rubinstein won their first four encounters when Alekhine was still a very young player after which Alekhine won 8 out of their subsequent 11 games (one game score is unavailable - see explanation by <Karpova> on my forum). The only other player with a plus score against Rubinstein was Emanuel Lasker, and that by only one game (+2 -1 =3), the last game they played in 1925 when Rubinstein was years past his peak.
    14 games, 1910-1930

  3. Rubinstein plays Capablanca
    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.

    9 games, 1911-1929

  4. Rubinstein plays Lasker
    With a score of +2 -1 =3, Emanuel Lasker was the only player, besides Alexander Alekhine, to have a plus lifetime score against Akiba Rubinstein. Here are the games these two chess titans played. What a pity about 1914. A World Championship match between these two would have been an absolute bell ringer.
    6 games, 1909-1925
