All good things must come to an end. Sadly, perhaps mostly for GM Dejan Bojkov, his coverage of the great Akiba Rubinstein must also have a stopping point. We reach that mark this weekend. No collection of "Dr Rubi's greatest hits" would be complete without a look into his Rook Ending play. It was because of Rubinstein that the term "all rook endings are drawn" came about. As we observe in this video lecture however, he was as creative with his winning plans as he was stubborn in his defense!
