Of White's 13.Ne4, Marco writes, <Janowsky would not have permitted the exchange of this bishop, but would have chosen 13.Bb1, trying to unleash a withering attack on Black's castled King. But a positional player like Rubinstein always thinks, "Why roam about in the distance when what is profitable is so near?>
