Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-05  Karpova: 6...ne4! nice move (i remember capablanca playing the same move - against, menchik, ragozin or alatorzev perhaps).

19...qf7? a bad move. black just doesn't do anything at all. he should play e5 and therefore protect his f-pawn by bg7 or qg6)

23.d5! rubinstein starts his attack.

26.b5! securing d5 for the knight

32.bd4! white is going after black's king

35.qc3 white threatens rd8:

36.ne3! a beautiful move!

40.re8 black resigns. don't know why the game goes on here. 40.rh8+ would have won also

Jul-20-07  Karpova: 22...Ra8? (White will gain control over the a-file. Samisch probably overlooked that the Bishop has to leave the a1-h8 diagonal after 23.d5! Qe7 24.dxe6 Qxe6 25.Ne3 as the knight will occupy d5)
Sep-27-09  bengalcat47: In Kmoch's book Rubinstein's Chess Masterpieces it is given that Black resigned after White played 40. Re8. Rubinstein missed the following pretty variation -- 40. Rh8+, Nxh8; 41. Qxh8+, Kg6; 42. e2e4, Qxe4; 43. f4f5+, Qxf5; 44. Qg8+, Kh6; 45. Bc1+ and mate in 2 more moves.

  Pawn and Two: The tournament book, "Marienbad 1925", by Bernhard Kagen, shows that Samisch resigned after 40.Re8. The additional moves shown here, were included in the annotations.
Oct-03-11  Kasparovsky5: I don't agree with bengalcat47 since he repeated the mistake previously made by the Late Hans Kmoch. Rubinstein's plan is the correct one: 40.Re8!!,Rd7.41.e4 (The reason behind Rubi's 40.Re8 i.e. to defend the afore-mentioned pawn thrust) followed by Rh8+!!,Nxh8.Qxh8+ with a swift mate.

That note contains a flaw. Kmoch says 43...Qxf5 is forced, but 43...Kf7 is only a perpetual check for White. Be tough to give away half a point that way.
