  Gregor Samsa Mendel: While my "club player" mind could see that Rubinstein clearly outplayed Treybal here, analysis with The Computer revealed some subtleties that were beyond me. The obviously ugly 12..f5 and 17..Nd8 were indeed errors (12..f6 and 17..b6 were better), and the suspect 21..Bc6 could have been improved with either 21..Rc8 or 21..Be6. But it turns out that Rubinstein's 21 Rd6, 23 Bxf7, and 26 Be5, which all looked so strong, were not as good as 21 e6, 23 Re6, or 26 b4, respectively. Black might have retained some slight drawing chances after 28..Kh8.
