  Peligroso Patzer: After 44. ♖xb7, Duras had three extra pawns and must have had good winning prospects, yet Marshall managed to hold the draw. Duras may have thrown away his chances with 47. b5?, which allowed his b-pawn to be captured by a Rook fork on the rank. BTW, later in the game, it would have been perfectly safe for Marshall to simplify by playing 66. ... ♔xh6 because the pawn ending after 67. ♖h1+ ♔g6 68. ♖xh7 ♔xh7 is easily drawn.
