Jul-13-07  benba57: Interesting loss of Marshall's.

  GrahamClayton: Pearsall cleverly exploits the hanging Black rook on b8 with the combination 13.♗h6 & (14.Qg3+). 12...♗d6 may have been a better option for Marshall to play.

22...♘e5 was the fatal error, allowing White to pin the e5 knight and have 2 rooks, knight and bishop for the Queen, although a exchange of Queens would lead to a loss as well, due to Pearsall's passed a-pawn.
