Classic Games: Why you should study them?

The studying chess classics is important for making progress in positional understanding. We can’t talk about chess erudition if the chess player hasn’t played over and over again the games of Rubinstein, Capablanca, Alekhin, Botvinnik, Smyslov and their modern successors such as Karpov, Kasparov, Anand and so many more modern chess talents.

But for a deep understanding of modern chess, it is important to have a high chess culture and desire to take notes from these classic games. In this post I would like to start with the game of A.Rubinstein-E.Lasker, 1909 which Rubinstein played at the highest level, showing a high endgame technique.
