  kevin86: "Gangway for the rook! Black resigns as mate comes next move!"-Chernev
Jan-12-04  jfc: I believe 7...d5 was tjhe losing move. After 8.e5, Black was in trouble
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: 12...Kd8 would have helped. (Junior 8) Could this guy's first name have been Noshtradamush?
Feb-13-04  Catfriend: For forseeing the attack? :)
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: Yes, and for not knowing how to spell his own name. (joke, joke)
Feb-13-04  Catfriend: LOL it's a combination of the seer and the mushs he uses...
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: That guy lived on thick mushy shoup.

  patzer2: Starting with 8. e5! White makes seven consecutive deflection moves to mate Frank J. Marshall in this Scotch miniature.

  Phony Benoni: Well, it was a simul. And Marshall had the ill luck of falling for this eight years before Nimzowitsch vs Alapin, 1914, the most famous example of the queen sacrifice.
Dec-18-09  MaxxLange: oops!

  Phony Benoni: I've located an article in the "Sioux City Journal", December 5, 1906, with a little more information about the game.

The game was played on December 4, 1906, and was the only blemish on Marshall's record in a 12-board simul. Mr The winner's name is actually <J. P Shoup>.

  al wazir: Black does a little better with 12...Kd7, but after 13. Be6+ (13. Bxf7+ Bd6) Ke7 14. Bxc8+ wins.
Nov-24-18  SeanAzarin: Looks like Black's last chance was to play 7... P-KR3, "putting the question" to the Bishop. Or 7... B-K2, breaking the pin.

Nov-24-18  goodevans: <jfc: I believe 7...d5 was tjhe losing move. After 8.e5, Black was in trouble.>

7...d5 was poor (either <7...h6> or <7...Be7> was necessary) but it was not yet losing.

I think that <11...Qxg5> was the losing move. After <11...Be6> white is better but black still has chances, e.g. <11...Be6 12.Bg6 Qxg5 13.Rxe6+ Kd7 14.Bxf7 Qf4> and black wins back the piece.

  Breunor: According to the computer:

7 d5 was fine, position evaluates to 0.14. After 8 e5, black has a slight advantage after h6.

The losing move is 11 Qxg5, which evaluates to 2.54. After 11 .. Be6 black is down only about half a pawn.

Nov-24-18  Cibator: Marshall'sh well and truly in the shoup (Shcotch broth, actually).
