Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-29-05  sneaky pete: From Spielmann's "Richtig opfern!" (The Art of Sacrifice). Played in the Leopold Trebitsch Memorial Tournament, Vienna, November 1933. An improvement on black's play is seen in Teschner vs Spassky, 1959, where the final moves and the result are given wrong however.

Black is Akiba Rubinstein's son. I don't know his first name, but he is certainly not the American player S.Rubinstein (New York, 1913 tournament) to whom this game is credited.

May-08-05  Karpova: Sammy Rubinstein? How old was he at that time - 12 or 13 years?
May-08-05  sneaky pete: Not Sammy and maybe not related. lists a Simon Rubinstein playing in the 1936 Trebitsch Memorial Tournament in Vienna. This game is from the 1933 edition of the same tournament, so I suppose it's the same Simon Rubinstein. Spielmann calls him "Jungmeister Rubinstein" and "Rubinstein jr", which led me to believe he was Akiba's son.
May-03-11  Aurora: Wow. I admit to being pretty impressed. Though I still say that somebody must have been pretty bored. *chuckle*

  GrahamClayton: Spielmann would have played 11. ♗xh7+ a milli-second after Rubinstein's hand was removed from his c-pawn!
