|May-16-05|| ||ArturoRivera: Capa playing the Marshall??|
|May-16-05|| ||ArturoRivera: even that actually is not a proper marshall :)|
|May-16-05|| ||hintza: This is a Chigorin. 11.d4 is the usual move.|
|May-17-05|| ||ArturoRivera: yeah, but later on capa plays d5, offering the normal pawn sacrifice of the marshall, thats why it us in the Marshall/Anti-Marshall colection by chessgames|
|May-17-05|| ||hintza: It's not a Marshall.|
|May-18-05|| ||ArturoRivera: yeah, i know its not a proper marshall, but playing d5 and offering the pawn on e5, makes it a marshall-type|
|Apr-10-06|| ||Whitehat1963: What a beautifully complex slugfest! Was Maroczy still as good this late in his career as he was around 1900?|
|Jan-26-07|| ||waddayaplay: On 13.exd, black should be able to capture with his queen, so it's not a Marshall gambit.|

<playing d5 and offering the pawn on e5, makes it a marshall-type>
Black's not offering the pawn on e5. On 13. exd5 Qxd5 guards it.
|Aug-07-07|| ||heuristic: Capablanca has both material and initiative. Yet 37...Rf8 seems much weaker than 37..Rxd2+. The almost forced sequence 38.Qxd2 Qh4 39.Nxf5 Qxh3+ 40.Kg1 Nxf5 41.exf5 Qg3+ 42.Kh1 Qxf3+ leaves Black in much better position than the game continuation.|
I think that Maroczy's reply 38.Nh1 can be considered the losing move.
|Aug-08-07|| ||psmith: <heuristic>
Your line with 37...Rxd2+ is clearly superior to Capa's 37... Rf8.
Nonetheless, I would like to see an improvement to Maroczy's 38. Nh1 in the game continuation. I keep looking at alternatives with Fritz 5.32 and they keep ending up being good for Black.
|Jan-04-08|| ||plang: 11 d3 is completely illogical since 9 h3 is designed to prepare d4 without allowing the pin ..Bg4. After 12..d5 Capablanca already had the initiative. However, Alekhine recommended 13..d4 as stronger and felt that the game was equal after 13..dxe. 23 Nxe7+ was again an illogical choice as the white knight is clearly the superior minor piece. Maroczy apparently underestimated the exchange sacrifice 34..Rxe3. Capablanca's 37..Rf8 prolonged the game; it seems out of character with Capablanca's usual clear style. Alekhine recommended 38 Qd1 with the idea of meeting 38..Qh4
with 39 Qf1. 51..Qe3 would have won a bit quicker.|
