  Chessical: Rubinstein wins effortlessly against a strong opponent.

Dus Chotimirsky plays the opening badly <6.Bb5> and <11.Bc4>; and then is permanently in trouble. Protecting his <f2> and <h2> squares becomes an insoluble problem for him.

  tamar: The pawn formation at move 12 is a French Defense on steroids.
Jan-29-20  MordimerChess: First at all, leaving e4 pawn for "later" was very unorthodox way of playing. Black achieved nothing and the pawn was pain in the ass later. Bb5 and Bc4 were also tempi wasters... and at the end castling on the king side was suicidal - but at that moment queen side would be bad idea also.

<tamar> I like your comment of French Defense on steroids so I decided to use it in my video title:

Enjoy the analysis on youtube :)
