Jan-31-04  Resignation Trap: After move 50, we have an early example of a theoretical draw in a Rook ending when one player has extra pawns on the f and h files (or, in this case, the mirror image on the a and c files).
Dec-09-05  RonB52734: Going over this game today with our local expert in the endgame, he is of the belief that 46...Nd5 threw away black's winning chances. He thinks (and I can't disagree) that there is no answer to 46...Nc6.

  Gypsy: <He thinks (and I can't disagree) that there is no answer to 46...Nc6.> That should be 46...Nc4, should not?
Dec-11-05  RonB52734: Right! I forgot I was looking at it upside down.

Now if I could just get this chair off of me, I could get right-side-up again!

  tamar: <Resignation Trap> If your still interested after nine years, Karpova gave a note on the San Sebastian page showing Rubinstein still had a win after move 50 <(58...Ka5! instead of 58...a3+? wins according to analysis by Kopaev, Karpov and Maizelis).>

But overall you are correct, Marshall allowed the win with 57 Rh1
