|Mar-23-10|| ||Honza Cervenka: Well, if Napier would not have played naive 70.Kxf2??, Marshall's effort would be fruitless. 70.Qe5+ g3 71.Kf3 leads to quick mate and after 70...Kg2 71.Qf4 g3 72.Qc1 white wins as well, for example 72...Ba7 73.Qc6+ Kh2 74.Qc7 (pinning Pg3 and attacking the Bishop) 74...Bb6 75.Qd6! Bc5 76.Qe5! Bd4 77.Qf4! Bg1 78.Kf3 Bf2 79.Qe5 etc.|
|Mar-15-13|| ||thomastonk: Though both men were quite young, and Napier won the match convincingly, it is hard to believe what has happened here: first White gives away the good bishop (5.♗b5, 6.♗xc6), and then this exchange sac 14.♘d2?, which is - to say something positive - highly speculative. And Black gives away all his advantage within the next moves, mainly due to the queen moves 15.. ♕d8? and 18.. ♕c7?. And at 19.. ♗f8 I am speechless .|
Fortunately, the tactical skirmish that follows is not bad, and Napier shows gameness avoiding the perpetual.
But assume Black plays 33.. ♖xf8!, and then, say, 34.♘xf8 ♔c7 or 34.♕b5+ ♔c8? I think, White is simply lost.
Another mistake is 44.. ♕xg1+, because with queens on board, White's king is under permanent attack, and Black will soon win some of White's pawns.
The final is indeed funny, but as Honza explained it needed much help to save Black here.
