  InspiredByMorphy: An exciting game with great play from both sides!
Oct-25-04  azaris: Even with a dubious opening, Marshall acquires compensation for his pawn and then steamrollers over his opponent in the endgame.

I think Janowski's play was less than satisfactory. Maybe he should have tried 19. ♘dxe6!? h6 20. ♘xc5 hxg5 21. ♘xd7 ♘xd7, which at least draws and the e-pawn might even win the game if he manages to hold on to it.

27. ♖xg7 could have been answered with 27...♔e8! winning the exchange and removing all hopes of drawing, but nevertheless Black is hopeless lost. The queenside pawns drop without further ado and the threat posed by the h-pawn is non-existent.

Jan-04-06  prinsallan: <azaris> The Albin is not a dubios opening, at least not for mr. Frank James Marshall. Check the opening and youŽll see that this is his favourite opening... And that includes playing both black and white!
