Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-03  fred lennox: Pawns are the foundation of deep strategy. The exchanges from 19-25 is deep. Black owns a double pawn and a backward b pawn. I suspect Rubinstein did not think weak/strong pawns. He went a step above. To place pawns so to give pieces cordination and mobility for long term strategy was his concern. 29 f4 blocks the double pawns. Rubinstein is ready for it seeing it will create attacking chances with the open g file and passed pawn.
