May-03-08  RookFile: I think that of all the chess players I've studied, Rubinstein has the most instructive games.

  GrahamClayton: Apparently Runinstein arrived over 30 minutes late, but it didn't seem to affect his play!

Dec-19-11  King Death: This opening arrives at a position that resembles an old sideline of the Tarrasch Queen's Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 ed 5.Nf3 Nc6 6.g3 Nf6 7.0-0 Be7 8.0-0 Be6) where White would have been better off not playing a4, since he can't play the typical idea 1.dc Bc5 2.Na4.

  Retireborn: 3...a6(?!) was one of Rubinstein's idiosyncrasies which he played at least eight times between 1919-1925 (I don't think my database of his games is complete.)

Most of his opponents played 4.cxd5, although Alekhine won one nice game with 4.c5. Also 4.g3 is worth a thought, as then the idea of ...dxc4 followed by ...b5 becomes rather less attractive.
