Aug-01-07  paladin at large: Pretty play by Rubinstein starting with 40. Rxg6

  master8ch: 13 years after the above comment, I say 40.Rxg6 was inferior to 40.Rxb7, to be followed by 41.e5. In fact, an immediate 40.e5 looks pretty good, even after 40...Rxf3+, 41.Kd2, Rxd3+ 42.Kxd3, Bxg2 43.Bxd6+, and 44.Bxb8, White being the exchange up.
Sep-15-20  sudoplatov: Perhaps Stockfish's 40.f4 may be of interest.
