May-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: My fellow citizen had no chance at all against this great player.
Oct-30-11  meppi: The idea on 15. Bxc7 is if black captures back with the bishop which appears to win material with

15. Bxc7

White plays this forcing variation

16. Ne7+ Kh8

17. Qxh7+ Kxh7

18. Rh4#

Jun-12-13  RookFile: 8....Qh5 is a good option for black.
Mar-23-15  A.T PhoneHome: Black is about to lose Queen, lovely finish by Marshall! These late 19th century games are just wonderful to view; plenty of sacrifices and such!

I wonder what Esser was hoping for with his Queen on c2?
