Apr-08-05  Whitehat1963: Rubinstein gets crushed during his magical year -- 1912 -- and with white to boot!

  Chessical: After <13.dxc5?> allowing Lowtzky to push on with <h3>, Rubinstein's position collapses. Rubinstein seemed unnerved by Lowtzky's obvious determination to attack.
Jan-13-19  zanzibar: <
(a) Anticipating White's Castles, he places the
second Bishop also in attacking position.

7.O-O (b) Not Rabinstein's habitual cautious style. It is obviously courting, if not disaster, anyhow dangier, Castlmg at this stage, when he couW wait by developing forces.

7...P-KR4 (c) Threatening the well-known attack: 8—. KMttS; 9—PxKt, BxP ch., etc.

13.PxP (d) 13—P-B4, followed by P-Q5, seems compulsory. At least one of the opponent's Bishops must be shirt out, and Kt-0* must be prevented.

15.N-B4 (e) A painful necessity of giving up a piece, as the loss of the exchange would leave him with an untenable position, too. In ttoe variations suggested in note (d), even if a piece had been lost, he would have had ah equivalent in Pawns and a comparatively safe position.

20.P-B5 (f) He cannot save both the attacked Pawns. M 20—Kt-K2„ then 20—Kt-R5.

24.N-N3 (g) If 24—K-R SQ.., then 24—RxPj 25—PxR, KtxP eft.; S6—K-Kt so.., R-KKt sq., and wins. The garnet is over in any case.

30...RxQ (h) A first-class game on the part of Herr Lowtzky. >

Jan-13-19  Retireborn: <z> Many thanks for that. One feels better informed about Scarpology, and the possibilities of expanding one's bust in a mere fifteen days.

A bad day at the office for Rubinstein.
