Rubinstein Started The Game Without A Rook But In The End Sacrificed More

In this video I am analyzing a handicap game played by Polish chess player Akiba Rubinstein where the latter starts the game without a rook but soon manages to gain a space advantage and an active position! Using the fact that his opponent started to make mistakes one after another Rubinstein sacrifices his queen which allowed him to checkmate opponent’s king! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
