Introduction

Kubbel fut l'un des chefs de file de l'étude artistique en Russie, en même temps qu'un excellent compositeur de problèmes et un fort joueur. Ses deux frères, Arvid (188-1942) et Eugène (1894-1942) ont été, eux aussi, de bons compositeurs.

His full name is Karl Arthur Leonid Kubbel, born on 25 December 1891 in St. Petersburg as a second son of Ivan Ivanovitch Kubbel, a Latvian. In his early childhood, when he was seven years old, he learned to play chess by observing his father to play the game. He became interested in chess problem and study solving. In 1903 he received a special award in the New Year´s solving contest organized by the magazine Bohemia in Prague. In the same year he also published his first chess problem. A year later, the Petersburg paper St. Petersburger Zeitung published his first endgame study. It happened on the day of his 13th birthday and 20 years later he improved it by adding two moves. In short period of time, he made his way into the range of the most important authors of all kind problems and endgame studies. All together he created 2784 problems and studies. Some of them were published after World War II  from the posthumous discovered works. Leonid Kubbel perished during the German blockade of Leningrad. He died of exhaustion and starvation, most likely on 18 April 1942 - his body was discovered in his apartment.


Leonid Kubbel

Even though chess problems prevail in his work, the endgame study production is amazing. Through his work he strongly influenced a whole bunch of Russian and soviet chess authors, who were inspired to start their own creative activity and work. Among the problem authors, the closest one to him was E.Palkoska in Prague, whom L.Kubbel met personaly already 1907 and became his permanent pen pal.


Kubbel est mort durant le siège de Leningrad, comme Troitzky... Et tout comme Rinck, il était ingénieur chimiste. Plusieurs ouvrages de ses études et problèmes ont été publiés :

- 150 sachmatnych etjudov, Leonid (K.A.L.) Kubbel, Leningrad, 1925 ;
- 250 Izbrannyh Etjudow, L.I. Kubbel, Fizkultura i Sport, Moskwa 1938 ;

la plupart, de façon posthume :

- Whitworth, T Leonid Kubbel’s Chess Endgame Studies 175p. Halifax 1984 & Cambridge Revised Edition 2004 ;
- Vladimirov & Fokin Leonid Kubbel 384p. Moskva 1984 ;
- Vladimirov, Yakov Leonid Kubbel 50p. Moscow 1998 ;
- Baturin, A(Edited) Izbrannye zadatshi L. I. Kubbelja 224p. Sah 742 Moskva 1958 ;
- Izbrannye Zadatchi, L.I. Kubbelja, Sostawiteli A.A. Baturin & O.K. Kubbel, Fizkultura I Sport Moskwa 1958, Sah 742, HB 224pp ;



250 Izbrannyh Etjudow, Moskwa 1938

Le style de Kubbel se distingue par une efficacité immédiate, l'idée étant exploitée sans avant-plan [voir Kasparyan sur ce sujet]. On voit par là que le compositeur fait partie, au même titre que Rinck ou que Troitzky, des pères fondateurs de l'école stratégique appliquée au finale artistique.

Sur les 45 études que renferme cette page, deux sont démolies : il s'agit de [+3014.74d2c5] où : 3... Nc6! procure la nulle. Cette étude, publiée en 1932, avait obtenue un 2ème prix. Et [+0010.54c8c6], après 2... d3!. Ce finale avait obtenue une 4ème MH. J'aimerais attirer particulièrement l'attention sur [+0020.24c4c1] qui se termine par un zugzwang de toute beauté [1er prix].


Une anecdote amusante se rattache à une autre étude, que rapporte G. Abrahams, dans EG :


Another of the greatest is Kubbel. Few, if any, of his studies are other than lifelike. Here (13) is one, which has an amusing historical epilogue. The study is useful, as one sees at first glance. Over half a century after composition., which was in 1914, two Kazakhstan players arrived at the following position (14). The putative winner was, between moves 5 and 8, wasting time. It is told that, during the adjournment, someone showed him Kubbel. Now here (15) is Kubbel showing, in a quite practical setting, the beauty that seems to attach to unexpected play to empty squares. How valuable an awareness of empty squares can be is shown in this "study" (16) from actual play, which brings me back to the observation that chess studies seem to step from the game into the frame.
