Feb-20-02  knight: A fine game by Mieses,there was absolutely no good reason for Marshall to give up his f-pawn.

  InspiredByMorphy: Im blown away with this game! To see Mieses play this well against Marshall with the Albin counter gambit (which Marshall played himself) is impressive.
Sep-12-05  Professeur Y: An interesting feature of this game is how long it takes for Mieses to develop his kingside: his bishop stays on f8 until move 17, his knight stays on g8 until move 33 (AND goes back there three moves later to finish things off), his rook stays on h8 until the very end, while his queen chases the white king all over the board! Great stuff! But not the kind of game a teacher would want to show a pupil, as it seems to violate the principle according to which one must "develop all his pieces".

Professeur Y,
This game reminds me of the quote which said that good moves, rather than good positions are what counts.

What is the checkmating variation for Mieses if Marshall had played 19.♔h3?

Oct-24-09  capanegra: <<GrahamClayton> What is the checkmating variation for Mieses if Marshall had played 19.♔h3?>

19♕h6+ 20.♗h5 (20.♔g4 ♘f6+ 21.♔f5 ♕g6#) ♕xh5+ 21.♔g3 ♕h4+ 22.♔f3 ♘f6 23.♕xg5 (23.♕f5 g4+ 24.♔f4 ♘h5+) ♕e4+ 24.♔g3 ♖hg8 and wins.

  SteinitzLives: Marshall never found a way to punish Q f6, hence Mieses used his Q powerfully throughout. Marshalls' early Nd2 does not look right in this swashbuckling variation of the Albin-counter-gambit.

To me, 13.Qa4 looked inferior to 13.Ne4, which attempts to punish 9.Qf6, as you suggest. Toga evaluates the position after 13.Qa4 as about even; after 13.Ne4, as about +0.4P.

  TheTamale: Mieses... was there anything he couldn't do?

Somewhere in his annotated games, Marshall makes a comment to the effect of "To play the Albin Counter Gambit in pursuit of a point is ridiculous!"

  kevin86: The Albin CG was a classic counter-attack thrust by black. White's late parry is stopped by the knight fork.
