Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-04  Swindler: This is a great game! RĂ©ti gets an attack going early, full of traps. Black doesn't take the repetion at move 18 and insteads keeps attacking. White fends off successfully and gets into a superior endgame. 29.Rxc3 is especially nice, if 29....Rxh2 then 30.Rd3 and the e5-pawn is unstoppable. Good play by both sides.
Jul-24-07  Karpova: 12.Nc3! (12.a3? Nxg5 13.Nxg5 Be7)

According to Kmoch 21...Be2 was the move which made Reti think he could win. 22.Rhd1! was a painful surprise for sure.

The endgame is (typically for Rubinstein) very instructive.

Jul-18-21  tbontb: 21....Be2 is tricky but the critical line 22.Bxe2 Rd2+ 23.Kb3 Rxe2 24.Nf7 Rf8 25.e6 Rxf2 26.Rcd1 R2xf7 27.exf7 Rxf7 28.Rhf1 appears to favour White. In the game, after 30.Ra3 White is clearly better as Rubinstein demonstrates so 29....Ra2 may be the last chance while even 29....Rxh2 30.Rd3 [suggested by Kmoch] Rc2+ 31.Kd4 hangs on grimly.
