Beginner chess players, meet brilliant technique! IM David Pruess brings us the second video installment on the subject of Akiba Rubinstein's endgame play this weekend, and it doesn't disappoint. After a required review of the Opening and Middlegame, we find ourselves in a nearly equal Rook Ending, save the difference of an isolated pawn or two. Enough of an advantage for 'Rubi's Rook' to go to town and take home the full point though... Enjoy!
