tough first moves
black bishop could take white bishop and stay alive?
yes or no?
Rubinstein is one of my favourite player.
Hard puzzle for me :-)
1. ... Bxb2
Am I missing something obvious? Maybe 2. Txg6 and there are multiple threats...
Yes. 1 ... Bxb2 is the better move but after 2. Rxg6 still losing.
See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfIlxMWvyJY for a really good analysis.
Title and puzzle are misleading, in the actual game, Rubinstein used this finish as black against Rotweli in one of the greatest games ever.
Difficult and interesting!
