May-10-07  Wolfgang01: Unbelievable. Kmoch has an even result to the great „Ben Akiba“ Rubinstein. Respect! (To both, of course and at least)
Dec-22-08  Emma: Wasn't Kmoch tutored by Rubinstein? Maybe that could explain the unexpected result.
Jun-19-10  asiduodiego: Excellent game by Kmoch. I've read his funny (and sometimes tragic) stories of "the grandmasters he knew" and it's quite a reading. This game is very instructive, also, on themes like gain small advantages, changin' paces, weak back rank, etc. Great plays: 22 Ncxb7!. The culmination of a confident building of advantge. And 29 Nd7!, taking advantage of the weak back rank and the loose rook. Very instructive.
Apr-26-14  knowall: Kmoch wrote an excellent book about Rubinstein.
He rightly praises Rubinstein as a truly great player, but laments the fact that the post war Rubinstein was often a shadow of the pre war Rubinstein. Without disrespecting Kmoch's excellent play, this game reflects Kmoch's own point of view.
May-24-14  RookFile: Couldn't agree more. Rubinstein should have wiped the floor with Kmoch, and Kmoch himself would probably agree.
