  plang: It was Kere's opinion that White has little chance of succeeding in the Ruy Lopez if he plays on only one side of the board. 15 c4 is rarely played nowadays because it allows Black to close the queenside. Rubinstein may have underestimated the strength of 40 Qxf5. Accepting the queen sacrifice with 40..Ng5 41 hxg..Rxf5 42 gxf..Bxg5 43 Rag1..h6 44 Bc1 would have given White a powerful kingside attack. Still, although Bogoljubov won a pawn Rubinstein's careful defense allowed no serious winning chances.
