  keypusher: Sure looks like it. Another mystery: what was Marshall thinking with 11...Bxh2+? I guess he didn't notice that ...Qc7+ would fail to Ne5, but it's hard to believe he would miss that.

  offramp: <chessgames.com> Black's 15th move was 15...Rh7. Therefore Lasker did not miss a mate in 2.

  offramp: <ramdaz: <Dres1> 19 RF7+ Nf7> The gamescore originally had 15...Rg8 which would indeed have allowed Dres1's mate in 2.
Mar-22-06  Whitehat1963: Ouch! Lasker and Capablanca both used Marshall as a regular whipping boy, unlike Rubinstein, with whom Marshall held his own pretty well.
Jul-30-07  Fast Gun: Prior to this game Marshall actually had a plus score against Lasker, but after this game, all that changed !!

No, this was the 14th game of the match, by which time Lasker had a large plus score over Marshall.

  Phony Benoni: Prior to the match, Marshall did have a plus score against Lasker--1 win (Paris 1900) and 1 draw (Cambridge Springs 1904). As <keypusher> points out, the match changed that just a bit. After the 14th game, the score was even: 7 wins for Lasker, 7 draws for Marshall.

  HeMateMe: Horrible blunder, but at least Frank got an opening and a chess club named after him. Immortality on West 10th St.!
Jun-20-10  Granny O Doul: <keypusher> Well, it's either that or he forgot that bishops were worth more than pawns.

  profK: Worst World Championship bashing I have seen...Marshall beat himself up !
Jan-06-12  M.D. Wilson: I have to say, this is a terrible game by Marshall.

  Check It Out: Marshall's play in this game has a sense of despondency. The match is over and he knows it.
Feb-07-15  poorthylacine: TO WHITEHAT1963:

Unlike Rubinstein but LIKE TARRASCH!!

Feb-07-15  1d410: Marshall's edge over Lasker and Capablanca was that he had the satisfaction of knowing chess is one big swindle!
