  InspiredByMorphy: Marshall sacks his queen and wins impressively. However Im not so sure how sound the queen sac was. For instance what if black had played 10. ...Qe7+ 11.Kd1 Be6 12.Re1 Nf6 13.Ng5 O-O where blacks king safely escapes danger. Or 10. ...Qe7+ 11.Be3 Nf6 12.Bb5 b6 13.O-O O-O where black again escapes danger.
May-25-06  themadhair: <InspiredByMorphy>Euwe gave the continuation 11...Qf5 12.Re1+ Be6 as best for black. It was still pretty imressive how much attack he got for the queen despite blacks error.

  shalgo: 11...Ne7? was a serious mistake. Pachman, like Euwe, gives 11..Qf5 12.Re1+ Be6. He emphasizes that Black needs to complete his development, even at the cost of a pawn or two. If Black had played this way, he would have had the advantage.

As the game goes, Black's bishop and KR are out of play and it is not surprising that Black soon has to return some of the material, with White maintaining a positional edge.
