Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: Often the original publication would save space by omitting the final moves of games where one side is well ahead in material as in this game. Thus, years later, when the original scorecards can't be found, the rest of the score is unavailable.

  PawnSac: <Raf: I wonder how would Stamm last another 17 moves before Rubi gets him?>

because he probably played it out to mate, just to be able to say.. "I lasted 44 moves against the great Rubenstein!"

But 28. Rf1 Rxb2 29. Qxa6 Ne4 seems sufficient to dump a bucket of cold water on any of his hopes, and is fully resignable.
