Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-15  wordfunph: 33.♖d6!
Apr-02-20  MordimerChess: So that's another chess game from crazy Ostende 1906 tournament.

By studying this game we can get some nice ideas of how to deal with StoneWall or how to fight and win open file. Of course Rubinstein focused on d6 but at the end he got whole D-file :D

There are also some simple traps there:
19. Bxf5?? Bxe5 20. fxe5 Qg5+ 21. Qg4 Qxe3+ 22. Rf2 Qxc1+ and black are winning

or 21. fxe5? Qg5+ 22. Kh1 Qxe3 losing the pawn

I also created the video about this interesting game:
