Feb-21-13  Howard: This game won a prize for the most brilliant of that particular round in the 1976 Lone Pine tournament.

Not only that, when Martz died--in 1983--this was one of two games that Chess Life ran as a tribute to him. The other was a long draw he against Hubner in Chicago in 1982.

  perfidious: Black's helplessness in the final position is curious, despite his extra rook. What he would give to have his guardian of the dark squares returned to his bosom, mercilessly destroyed by Martz ten moves before the end.
