  meloncio: I'm not sure of the first one, but 30.Rc3 looks like a time-trouble blunder. I think 30.Re1 was better.

A nice game for Marshall.

Jan-10-06  shaikh123: <meloncio>i agree with you Re1 could have saved white losing the queen and eventually the game.

Sorry but 30 ♖e1 costs White a piece.

The line is 30 ♖e1 ♕b6+! <makes the White b2-bishop loose with tempo> 31 ♔h1 ♖xe1+ 32 ♕xe1 <deflection from b2> ♕xb2 and Black is ahead a whole piece.

29 ... ♗d3! is a brilliant idea by Marshall: use the opposite-colored bishops to force the entry of the Black rook onto the 7th rank. Since White's bishop is dark-squared, he cannot use it to keep the Black e8-rook out of the light square e2.

Apr-20-08  Whitehat1963: Wednesday/Thursday puzzle after 29. Qd2.
Feb-11-12  RookFile: Marshall employs a favored defense aginst one of it's foremost practicioners.
