    The book is The Life and Games of Akiva Rubinstein by Nikolai Minev and John Donaldson.

    Keep 'em coming, Dejan.  I can't get enough of Rubinstein.  This series has done more than any other to help my chess understanding.

    Amen to danito 1998's comment.  These videos are the best and most enjoyable chess material I've ever used -  and that's in 50+ years.

    Rubinstein's play in these "simple," "drawish-looking"  positions is enchanting.  There is just so much content in these basic endings!

    Every video I saw on this site was amazing. My technique has incredibly improved and I have started reasoning about chess in a new way. I thank chess.com and I recommend this site to every chess player. :)

    Thank you GM Dejan Bojkov for this fantastic demonstration of Akiba Rubinstein's brilliance, as well as the Nikolaj Minev book recommendation for further study of Rubinstein's historical contribution to Chess excellence & evolution. Super demystification of skillful endgame "technique" by a great titan of chess. I anticipate eagerly the series on the raw chess genius of Jose Raul Capablanca. Good stuff!

    at 7:10, why not kh5 and then kg5, saving moves?

    Indeed, Rubinstein was not a Doctor, although Danny considers him as one Wink

    Capablanca is coming next, and as for a good book to study Rubinstein's games there is a recent one by Nikolaj Minev and another author whose name I do not remember, and eventhough I did not read it yet I can recommend it as the author is a very good one!

    The white player in the second game was Rosselli and the game took place in Baden-Baden in 1925. This was the period when Rubinstein's mental health was deteriorating however his chess brilliance was clearly still evident. Incidentally Rubinstein was not a Doctor and I would be grateful if Chess.com could stop giving him that title.

    Excellent video again GM Bojkov.

I would like to have to same kind of serie on Jose Raul Capablanca it would be also quite to the point i think. I cant wait for ur other lessons thank u very much!
