Rubinstein. A Neglected Masterpiece.
My friend kamalakanta recently asked me about my favorite players. One I mentioned was Rubinstein.
I have taken the above photo from one of kamalakanta's blogs, here.
Perhaps at some point I will do a series about his chess, For now I have a couple of hours to do something about a game of Rubinstein's which, although it made a big impression on the best players of the time, has since been forgotten. It was played against Erich Cohn, in the famous tournament at Karlbad in 1911, where Richard Teichmann (- another article in the making there!! -) scored his greatest success.
A photograph i have used before is from that event.
Hopefully the game and annotations will speak for themselves. Notes to moves 26 and 27 by leonhardt.
