Jun-22-04  suenteus po 147: Very deep play by Rubinstein. Not that I'm qualified to say, but only because I don't understand every move he makes until I see one of Reti's moves and how Rubinstein's last three or so seem to account for it. Reti must have kicked himself after 40. h4? (a time control move?) since 40...Rxh4+ wins the queen!
Dec-07-06  Karpova: He had to move the queen instead. Rc1+ also threatened. Anyway, Rubinstein's ahead in material.
Aug-12-07  Maynard5: White's early problem here is that both of his knights are misplaced. One knight is on e1, where it obstructs the king rook, while the other is on a2, where it is too far away from the center. As a result, Black is able to seize control of the c-file. Rubinstein's positional advantage was decisive even before the win of the exchange.

  tamar: I see 29 Nb4 as the key error. It commits Reti to playing 30 Nxd5 which is too dangerous.

The game is nearly even after 29 Nf4 Ne4 30 Bxe4 dxe4 31 Nxe6 Qxe6 32 Bb4
