  keypusher: Wow, what a battle! Kasparov discusses Rubinstein's Steinitzian set-up in his annotations to Karpov's famous strangulation victory over Unzicker in OMGP V.

Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974

Apr-08-12  Karpova: This game score is also given on page 211 of J. Donaldson and N. Minev 'The Life and Games of Akiva Rubinstein - Volume 2: The Later Years', 2nd edition, Milford, USA, 2011.

  plang: Rubinstein's ambitious plan with 23..Rh8 was working until 36..Re7?!; better was 36..Nxe2 37 Kxe2..Ra2 38 Rb1..Qh7 with some advantage for Black. Instead he had to defend carefully for a draw.
