Kibitzer's Corner
May-25-05  paladin at large: Rubinstein's problems stem from 14. f5 as much as anything else, don't they? 15. Nf6+ is a clever rejoinder, which activates white's rook and leads to exposure of the black king.
May-25-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: Refuted or not, the king's gambit is never boring!
May-25-05  hintza: Refuted?
May-27-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: Well, I don't know, but nobody of rank seems to play it nowadays...
Jan-30-08  Calli: Want to buy the original score card fot this game? http://cgi.ebay.com/CHESS-Original-...

Cheap! :-o

Feb-07-09  Banoboy: " Heavy Metal Thunder: Well, I don't know, but nobody of rank seems to play it nowadays..."

A quick search at chesslab.com shows quite a few King's Gambits were played by players rated over 2600 in the past few years, including one by Ivanchuk.

Aug-31-09  WhiteRook48: how about 27...Rd2 the "bigger threat"
Sep-12-14  Christoforus Polacco: <WhiteRook48>
27....Rd2 ? 28.Qg3+ and now : 28... Kf7 29.Re1 Qd3 30.Re7+ and 31.Q:g7 mate

28... Kh6 29.Bf8 Nh5(Ne8 30.B:g7+) 30.B:g7+ N:g7 31.Qh4+ and next 32.Rf6+

...........
Instead of 6... Bb4 ?! better 6.... Bd6 ! (from Karker's game)7.Nge2 O-O 8.B;d7 Nb:d7 9.d4 Nb6 10.O-O g5 ! and now interesting is 11.g3 !?

Jun-10-18  zanzibar: If this comes from TFS source then Bogo's comments at move 4 are missing.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Nov-27-18  andrewjsacks: Poor Rubinstein was rarely Rubinstein after the war.
Nov-27-18  offramp: Rubinstein as White offered the King's Gambit 39 times.
Nov-27-18  andrewjsacks: Rubinstein was, along with Korchnoi and perhaps Keres, the strongest non-WC. And do not forget poor Pillsbury.
Nov-27-18  offramp: <andrewjsacks: Rubinstein was, along with Korchnoi and perhaps Keres, the strongest non-WC>

Very interesting. I have not heard that opinion expressed before.

  Korora: <28...♘e8 Rubinstein overlooked that he is lost after 28....Qe3+ 29.Kh1 Qh6 30.Rxf6+! Kxf6 31.Qe7+ Kf5 32.Qf7+ Ke4 33.Qc4+!> "Overlooked"? Bogo's hovercraft was full of eels, methinks.

  OrangeTulip: <andrewjsacks: Rubinstein was, along with Korchnoi and perhaps Keres, the strongest non-WC> What about Short and Timman, and Bronstein!?! How to measure that? It is an opinion indeed.
Nov-27-18  Strelets: The cancellation of the Lasker-Rubinstein match in 1914 was a great loss to chess. Just think of the endgames they would've played!
Nov-27-18  Nosnibor: It seems that Reti did not start playing the Reti Opening until 1923 onwards and that before this he was more often playing King Pawn openings.So though he was a renowned positional player it was apparent he could play a good tactical game.
Nov-27-18  andrewjsacks: <offramp> Thank you.

  perfidious: <Nosnibor>, it was no accident that Reti was invited to Abbazia (1912), which featured only King's Gambits.
