why not 13... Qxf6 ?
cause of e5 pawn ?

Apr-10-12  King Death: < bolek88: 13.Bxf6 gxf6

why not 13... Qxf6 ?
cause of e5 pawn ?>

I don't think Rubinstein would have gone after the pawn on e5 and given up the cramping f5 outpost that hems in the bishop on c8, instead he gets the same kind of king side pawn roller with g4-g5/h4-h5. With Black's pieces passive on the queen side it's hard for him to come up with counterplay.
