Another Diamond -- or should be say "Rubi" -- in the rough! GM Dejan Bojkov keeps the Greatest Chess Minds train rolling today with a detailed look at Akiba Rubinstein's first victory over the World Champion Emanuel Lasker. The youngest has no fear when facing one of Lasker's pet lines, he quickly earns a slight positional advantage, and if you make your way through the complex middlegame, you will see some excellent Rook Ending Technique by Rubinstein.
