In this line after Bb5 you can give the knight on a4, then play b2-b3 followed by a2-a4 and take the more important pawn on c6 after which Black's position falls apart,
At 8:42, is the piece hanging on e7 after Qxe2 Qxe2 Bxe2 Re1? Because Black has Bb5, threatening the white knight. Regardless, white is still better with the 2 bishops and they can take a7, regaining the pawn, but they are not up a piece.
i never had a proper plan for black ..if white played play d4 ...I like these games :)
Great video! Thanks. More entertaining than kino.
Great game. This game is also featured in Kasparov's ChessBase DVD on the queen's gambit declined.
Nice game! Rubinstein was a true pioneer
The whole f3, Rf2, Bf1 idea is ridiculously instructional. I feel like I gained a few rating points just from seeing this idea in this video lecture.
Erin Geller was most underrated attacker of all time. His brilliancies during the cold war era of chess against the world's strongest GMs were inspirational and his winning record vs top players of his day was simply astonishing.
We'll have series on Capablaca very soon. There are many great players and we shall naturally try to cover most of them.
Oh, and Mikhail Tal of course
There are far greater attackers than Kramnik.
Great video, I really enjoyed it!
Absolutely brilliant game. I love how he just slowly improves and kills all counterplay. Great analysis-- thank you!
Great video, masterpiece of playing against IQP and hanging pawns. In my games, I mostly avoid the transition from IQP to the hanging pawns, as I feel they are much harder to attack and blockade. However, preventing this transition too hard does create chances for the side playing with the IQP. Something to learn from Rubinstein for sure. Thanks.
Nice video. Good exploration of the opening with some interesting history. I like the pointing out the value of the "quiet" moves and well as the point of emphasis on saving tempi.
Благодарим за видеото.

The Tarrasch Defense was "down and out" for a very long time at the highest levels of chess (until Spassky, and much later Kasparov, gave it new life) and that was in large part because of the approach developed by Dr. Rubinstein! GM Bojkov reviews a critical win by Rubinstein in today's video, highlighting the principles of playing against Hanging Pawns and white's subtle maneuvers therein.
