Nov-03-07  Poisonpawns: Fantastic chess by rubinstein.Great Combinative play
Jun-12-10  talisman: some ball game!
Oct-13-10  tonsillolith: It's looking advantageous for White during the early 30s, but the dominance is very clear once he plays 36. cxd5.

Geee whiz. I love whenever there are complications afoot and then suddenly one player has a crystal clear positional advantage.

Oct-13-10  mrsaturdaypants: I'm not sure why black didn't play 20...Bxc3. I guess after 21 Ba3 Bxa1 22 Bxf8, white has some initiative for the pawn, and black may miss his DSB as a defender. It's not clear to me that the text is an improvement, though.

  tamar: Black keeps eying the mate on h1 but

if 33...dxc6 34 Nxe6+ Kg8 35 Be4

Oct-13-10  ughaibu: Guess the move score: 87
Jul-21-11  50movesaheadofyou: Certain sources have erroneously given this game as Chigorin-Rubinstein.
Mar-17-15  rsatx: It seems to me that if 20...Bxc3 white replies Qc2 threatening Bh7 mate, then captures and holds the black bishop.
