Rubinstein - Znosko-Borovsky

St Petersburg 1909

Queen's Gambit declined

1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Nf3 O-O 7.Qc2 b6 8.cxd5 exd5 9.Bd3 Bb7 10.O-O-O Ne4 11.h4 f5 12.Kb1 c5


12...Rc8 should have been played instead. Then 13.Qb3 would be met simply by 13...Nxc3

13.dxc5 bxc5

 After 13...Ndxc5 White continues 14.Nxd5 Bxd5 ( if 14...Bxg5 and White would win by15.Bc4) 15.Bc4  In this variation Black must not be able to take the Bishop at d3 with a check, hence White's 12th move.

14.Nxe4 fxe4 15.Bxe4 dxe4 16.Qb3 Kh8 17.Qxb7 exf3 18.Rxd7 Qe8 19.Rxe7 Qg6 20.Ka1 Rab8 21.Qe4 Qxe4 22.Rxe4 fxg2 23.Rg1 Rxf2 24.Rf4 Rc2

I f24...Rbxb2 White wins by 25.Rf8
