Mar-15-20  MordimerChess: Very typical Queen's Gambit Declined position which seems to be quite equal. But then Rubinstein get his advantage almost out of nothing. Moves like 11...Re8 and following 12...c4 gives black slightly worse position. From the other hand 11...d4 12. exd4 Ne4 13. Bxe7 Qxe7 14. O-O Ndf6= give equal but boring game which would be difficult to play.

Rubinstein improves the position of his pieces just to win one single pawn. Then rinse and repeat, get another pawn and simply for the endgame. Brilliant!

And this is my analysis, enjoy!

I ask to pause the video four times so you can try to think how to improve position in critical moments, it's pretty nice chess training for all players.

Exactly! They make only good looking, natural moves... and for some reason, good looking natural moves made by their opponents aren't that strong, haha :D
