  keypusher: Nimzowitsch annotates this game with a lot of insight and evident affection for Rubinstein in his Carlsbad tournament book.

Nimzowitsch: <Offering further simplification, and why not? Rubinstein is agreeable! Insofar as such qualities may be discussed in relation to serious play, we should like to point out here that even over the board one may discern Rubinstein's characteristic traits, meekness and complaisance (which of course does not prevent him from finding the very finest of plans).> (from Nimzowitsch's tournament book 'Izbrannye partii mezdunarodnovo turnira v Karlsbade 1929')

  Mateo: Amazing Bishop ending. At first glance, I thought this had to be a draw. I am wondering where Black went wrong. Any idea?

  Retireborn: Black seems to be always struggling after 49.e6+.

In the tournament book Becker suggests 47...Kf5! as a good practical chance. He analyzes 48.Kd6 Kg4 49.e6 Kxh4 50.Ke7 Kg5! out to a draw then, but says White xcan keep a small advantage with 48.Bg3 Ke6 49.Kd4.

A possibilty not mentioned by Becker is 40...g5 (Houdini, instead of 40...Bd7); then 41.Bxg5 Ke5 42.g4 Kxe4 and the white pawns look vulnerable.
