RUBINSTEIN (1882-1958) The style of the Polish Grandmaster Rubinstein forms a bridge between Steinitz and the present day. He had a splendid grasp of the requirements of a position and was an exceptionally fine attacker when occasion demanded. However, in the field of the endgame many consider that his achievements will never be equalled. In Rook endings in particular his play was simply phenomenal. Yet his play also had its deficiencies. Tactially he was more fallible, as his games agains the great tactician Spielmann showed. For that matter there was nothing fanciful about any of his play, especially in the opening stages, where it tended rather towards monotony} 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bb5 Bb4 5.
