  offramp: Marshall missed a win here.

The ending looks straightforward.
25.Nf6+ Kg7
26.Nh5+ gxh5
27.Rc6! bxc6
28.Qg5+ with perpetual check.

But after 27. Rc6!

...Marshall could have played 27...Rd2+. The difference is that after the white king moves Black plays 28...Qd8! . That stops Qg5+, and wins.

  fredthebear: A clearance check re-arranges the position. Good post <offramp>!

Shall we say Jaffe swindled Marshall?
