Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-25-07  Karpova: 37...Rf3

Carl Schlechter: <Now Black mistakenly begins to play for a win. After 37...Rb7 White had nothing better than to repeat the position with 38.Ra4.>

From <Deutsche Schachzeitung> 1908.

While it may be true regarding the position that Rubinstein should have taken the draw but playing for a win was justified considering the tournament situation. This game was played in the last round of the International tournament in Vienna and these were the final standings:

1. Duras 14.0
2. Maroczy 14.0
3. Schlechter 14.0
4. Rubinstein 13.0
5. Teichmann 12.0

It's obvious that Rubinstein had nothing to lose since Teichman couldn't catch him but much to gain - he would've been tied for first had he won.

  Phony Benoni: Actually, the game was played in round 11 (of 19) with this tournament situation:

8.0: Schlechter
7.5: Maroczy
7.0: Duras, Rubinstein

The other three leaders all won this round, so Rubinstein may have felt some pressure to keep up. Or he simply may not have seen the pretty finish engineered by Mieses, who certainly deserves some credit.
