|Jun-12-05|| ||lopium: Strongly played by Carlos. I really like this game.|
|Mar-15-06|| ||Resignation Trap: According to the memoirs of Grigory Levenfish , Marshall made a bad move at the board while Torre was watching other games. He took his move back and restarted his clock! There were several witnesses to this affair, and Marshall was forced to make his original move.|
In the book of the tournament, Efim Bogoljubov does not mention this.
If it took place, then it was undoubtedly 32.Bf2?, instead of 32.Kf2.
By the way, does anybody know why Torre played 31...Nb6, instead of 31...Nxe5 ? Bogo didn't mention this, either.
|Mar-15-06|| ||Calli: The bad move could also be 27.Bg3 ( Kf2! holds) The whole Bg3-Bf2 idea is not right. Torre might have been distracted by the incident if it did take place and missed your Nxe5!|
Do you have the tournament book? I have a quick question for you if you do.

Marshall caught cheating. Who would have thunk it?
|Nov-26-09|| ||andrewjsacks: Remarkably late resignation by Marshall!|
|Jan-04-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: I didn't know Marshall had such a reputation.|
|Jan-04-13|| ||JimNorCal: To my knowledge Marshall did not have a reputation for cheating (correct me if I'm wrong), but he definitely played on in positions that others would resign.|
On occasion he was able to launch a good swindle!
