                    [description] => Akiba Kiwelowicz Rubinstein (1880 to 1961) was a Polish chess Grandmaster at the beginning of the 20th century. In his youth, he astonished the chess world, defeating many famous players, including Capablanca and Schlecthter.

Rubinstein was one of the earliest chess players to take the endgame into account when choosing and playing the opening. Exceptionally talented in the endgame, particularly in rook endings, Rubinstein broke new ground in endgame theory.

Jeremy Silman ranked him as one of the five best endgame players of all time, and a master of rook endgames. In this series Bryan shows us Rubinstein playing against world class players in a variety of openings showcasing his brilliant play which is often called a work of art for its simplicity and technique.

Overview

Akiba Kiwelowicz Rubinstein (1880 to 1961) was a Polish chess Grandmaster at the beginning of the 20th century. In his youth, he astonished the chess world, defeating many famous players, including Capablanca and Schlecthter.

Rubinstein was one of the earliest chess players to take the endgame into account when choosing and playing the opening. Exceptionally talented in the endgame, particularly in rook endings, Rubinstein broke new ground in endgame theory.

Jeremy Silman ranked him as one of the five best endgame players of all time, and a master of rook endgames. In this series Bryan shows us Rubinstein playing against world class players in a variety of openings showcasing his brilliant play which is often called a work of art for its simplicity and technique.

Chess Fans have said: Great lecture on one of the greatest endgame players of the period. He was a great artist and his depth of positional understanding was way ahead of his time. Your analysis really helps to point this out. Thank you Bryan!

GM Bryan Smith grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and currently splits his time between Novi Sad, Serbia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Some of his accomplishments include first place in the 2008 National Chess Congress, 2009 National Chess Congress, 2010 Philadelphia International, and 2011 Limpedea Cup. He was on the national champion UMBC chess team from 1999 to 2001, and became a GM in 2013. Bryan is the first-ever Grandmaster from Alaska!
