I don't know the article, but I am pretty sure it is good.
Georg Meier is the biggest Rubinstein expert on this planet, and - judging from some commented games I've seen from him - he is a talented chess writer as well.

C10: Meier on the Rubinstein Var in NIC-yearbook

Georg Meier apparently has written an article on the Rubinstein Variation with 7.c3 in the latest NIC-yearbook. Is it any good? 7. c3 seems critical with Meier choosing to defend a rather bleak position:

[Event "11th EICC Men"]
[Site "Rijeka CRO"]
[Date "2010.??.??"]
[White "Ragger,M"]
[Black "Meier,Geo"]
[Round "3"]
[Result "1-0"]
[WhiteElo "2572"]
[BlackElo "2663"]
[ECO "C10"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nd7 5. Nf3 Ngf6 6. Nxf6+ Nxf6 7. c3 c5 8. Be3 Qc7 9. Ne5 a6 10. Qa4+ Nd7 11. Bb5 cxd4 12. Bxd7+ Bxd7 13. Qxd4 Bb5 14. a4 Bd6 15. Nxf7 Kxf7 16. axb5 axb5 17. Ke2 Qc6 18. Rhd1 Rxa1 19. Rxa1 b4 20. Rd1 Rd8 21. Qb6 Qc4+ 22. Ke1 Bc7 23. Qxb7 Rxd1+ 24. Kxd1 bxc3 25. b3 Qd5+ 26. Qxd5 exd5 27. Bd4 Bxh2 28. g3 Bg1 29. Ke2 c2 30. Be3 d4 31. Bc1 Ke6 32. Kf1 Bh2 33. Kg2 Kd5 34. Kxh2 Ke4 35. Kg2 Kd3 36. Kf1 Kc3 37. Ke2 h5 38. f4 1-0

Thanks in advance.
