Why is this a draw? 27.Ra1 .. is the only halfway decent move I can find, but after 27... Qxg2+ black should win.

Who is this Richter anyway?

"We do not believe Rubinstein's oppo­nent in the following game is the well­known German master Kurt Richter (who would have been only 19 when it was played). More likely it is a Swed­ish amateur with the same family name."

White has <27. Rd2> with the same idea as 27. Ra1, but preventing ...Qxg2+.

By move 20 or so, the position looks like it should be an easy win for Black. Maybe instead of 20...Nh5, he should simply castle.
