Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-19-09  SamAtoms1980: If any game is a vintage Rubinstein, then this is.

Astonishing how he manages to thoroughly conquer his opponent without even appearing to breathe hard.

Jul-18-13  Albion 1959: Suprised at Cohn resigning when he did, but after losing all those other long hard endgames to Rubinstein, he probably decided it was not worth the effort trying to play on and that he was flogging a dead horse horse anyway and eventually lose in another 40+ moves time.
Jul-18-13  fokers13: 2 pawns down and superior B vs N?Make that 10 moves instead.
Mar-06-14  Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker, Leipzig, June 27, 1912:

<Eine großartige Leistung von ihm ist seine Partie gegen E. Cohn, die hier folgt. Klar wie Kristall, dabei jeder Zug voll Gewicht, zeigt sie die innigste Vereinigung von Oekonomie der Mittel mit Kraft der Durchführung.>

(A great achievement by him [Rubinstein] is his game against E. Cohn, which follows now. Clear as a crystal, yet every move full of weight, does it show the innermost union of economy of means and force of execution.)

Nov-27-19  zydeco: Somewhat amusing how Cohn plays the opening aiming to give Rubinstein an inferior pawn structure with 7....Bb4. Fat chance of that! By move 11, it's black who has weak doubled pawns and is desperately trying to cook up some kind of Hail Mary kingside attack.
