Jan-06-04  Catfriend: Nothing.. It's absolutely save and makes sense.. but Spielmann prefers to complicate the situation

  tamar: A fascinating clash. Rubinstein put immense faith in his two bishops, but would not have been rewarded without the blunder 37 g4? which allowed the black square bishop access to f4.
Feb-15-18  goser: Rubinstein played this game like Spielmann ... against "Rubinstein in irresolute mood".
