  keypusher: Having begun with a typically modest opening, Rubinstein breaks open the game with 16.e4 Qb6 17.Bf3 Ne7 18.Rad1 Rc8 19.exd5 exd5:

Now 20.Bxd5! Nxd5 21.Nxc4 Qe6 22.Nd6+ Kf8 23.Nxc8 Bxc8, reaching this position:

Instead of Rubinstein's 24.c4?!, immediately decisive is 24.Qd2 Nb6 25.Qd8+ Qe8 26.e6! fxe6 27.Qd6+ Qe7 28.Qf4+ Kg8 29.Bh4!.

Black later misses 26....Qe7, which would have kept the game going.
