|Mar-04-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: 10.Kd2 is quite natural here as 10.Be2 looks inferior due to 10...Rg8.|
Black should not have traded the Queens. In ending his Pawn weaknesses on Kingside became fatal.

Marshall's endgames seem really weak in this match
|Jan-24-11|| ||Llawdogg: After Lasker's 17th move, Bg2, this game looked exactly even. However, Marshall had a forced win. Unfortunately, 17 ... Be4? was not the winning move. It was a case of right piece, wrong square. Schlecter pointed out that 17 ... Bd5! was the winning move.|
|Jan-24-11|| ||Llawdogg: After Bd5, the game might have continued like this:
18 Qxa7 Qc6 with a double threat, diagonally and vertically.
19 Qc5 Qa4 with multiple threats.
20 a3 Na2+! going for mate.
21 Kb1 Rd6 another piece joins in.
22 c4 Nc3+ almost there.
23 bxc3 Qb3+ white may resign here.
24 Ka1 Qxc3+ the queen, rook, and bishop will soon mate the white king whether it goes to b1 or a2.
|Jul-20-12|| ||King.Arthur.Brazil: 50...h5?! What else? Black N is lost!
The planed 50...Nd6+ 51.Kd4 treats Rc7#.
Nb5+ 52.cxb5+ Rxb5 53.Nc3 Ra5 54.Rxh7 and White King side Ps must win.

I disagree with this general assessment of the position, as in my opinion, there's still plenty to play for, though Black needs to exercise care. The move Marshall played is one idea which looks reasonable, with others being 19....Kb8 or possibly 19....a6. Black's 21....e5 is a move I'd think twice about playing, because after this, the kingside can indeed be exposed. Once White plays 26.f4, this ending looks very good for him.
