Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-03  Javid Danowski: To Chessgames: This isn't Akiba Rubinstein, but an American namesake. Capablnca's only win aginst Akiba Rubinstein was at Berlin 1928.
Nov-01-03  Calli: The player should be S Rubenstein. The same player in this game: S Rubenstein vs A J Fink, 1916
Nov-02-03  Benjamin Lau: Yay, now Akiba has an even score with Capa in the database.
Nov-03-03  Calli: Bump!

Chessgames: Lets get Akiba out of this game! I mean, he never played an american tournament.

Nov-03-03  Benjamin Lau:, did you see these messages?
Dec-22-03  Lawrence: 27.....h4 was good (and Rubenstein was clearly well down here) but 27.....Qh4 would have been considerably better. (So spoke Junior 8.)
