|Nov-10-12|| ||RookFile: Yep. He had some fantastic swindles, worthy of his great skill in combination. But what really impresses me is his ides in the opening, for example the Marshall gambit to the Ruy Lopez or his way of playing the Petrov defense. He was the type of player who played 1. d4 not to play it safe, but to steer the game to wild and complicated tactics.|

|Jan-01-13|| ||SBC: For those interested in such things, a while back I had made a photo-montage of Frank Marshall:
|Feb-11-13|| ||Caissanist: Outstanding photo collection <SBC>, many thanks for putting that up.|
|Feb-11-13|| ||Caissanist: Marshall's Wikipedia page makes the statement that <He won the U.S. Championship in 1904, but did not accept the title because the current U.S. champion, Harry Nelson Pillsbury, did not compete.> Is this in fact true? I have never heard this before.|
|Feb-11-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <Caissanist> Marshall won the 7th American Chess Congress at St. Louis in 1904. Its organizer, Max Judd, had meant the tournament to provide a successor to the ailing Pillsbury, but this claim is not generally recognized.|
7th American Chess Congress (1904)
Marshall's exact attitude toward the title is still a matter of dispute. It may be significant that when Showalter was proclaimed the championship in 1909 more or less by default, Marshall lost no time arranging a match with him.
|Feb-16-13|| ||Caissanist: <Phony Benoni>, thanks as always!|
|Feb-23-13|| ||Nightsurfer: <Frank James Marshall> was <"... a fine all around player ...">, as <KingDeath> has put it in his posting of <Jul-04-12>, and <Frank James Marshall> had <" ... a sense of humor ...">, as we learn from the posting by <RookFile> on <Sep-14-12>.|
And since <Frank James Marshall> had this <"sense of humor">, then it will most probably have made him smile - whilst sitting on his cloud up there in Heaven - that two kids from Germany, namely Julian Groetzbach and his brother <Daniel>, have quite generously conceded to <Frank James Marshall> that the latter had demonstrated <"... great understanding of chess ..."> whilst storming the castle of his opponent by executing the famous Bishop's Sacrifice on h7, just have a look at the clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey0H... ... and enjoy! ;-)

An article - that mentions Marshall. (I did not see it in the last few pages of kibitzing.)
|May-05-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <<Jan-20-12 <visayanbraindoctor:> <"The Jänisch is becoming frightening. It’s a good job I’m not a 1.e4 player" (Giri). It is very difficult to break Radjabov's Jänisch. It might be the reason.>|
Marshall was the great pre-WW2 exponent of the Ruy Lopez, Schliemann Defense (C63). <<<<>>>> >>
I recently posted a web page - that contains a "state of the art" analysis of this line ...

My little web page on Marshall.
|Jul-23-13|| ||The Rocket: The originator of the marshall attack!
This guy plays chess they way it should be played. By far the most entertaining player. Let me know if you find a dull game of his!
|Jul-23-13|| ||Karpova: <The Rocket: The originator of the marshall attack!>|
K Walbrodt vs Conill / Ostolaza / López / Herrer, 1893
|Jul-23-13|| ||The Rocket: <Karpova:>
You don't get credit by playing the first move, any moron could to do that.
Their continuation is completely different, and does not constitute what is widely regarded to be the marshall attack.
|Jul-23-13|| ||perfidious: <Karpova>: In this instance, it is all to the good that Conill-Ostolaza-Lopez-Herrer Attack does not come trippingly to the tongue. |
Some of the abortions which have been foisted upon us as nomenclature in the headings for variations are bad enough: this would about take the cake for absurdity and stupidity.

I agree with you as there is no doubt about Marshall deserving the variation to be named after him, though he was not the originator of 7...0-0 or 8...d5 - see http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/... for an interesting discussion, also of the Frere-Marshall game for which Marshall gives no date in 'Comparative Chess' (Philadelphia, 1932) while Soltis claims it to have been played in 1917 (without giving any source) when it would predate the Capablanca game.
Chess history has done Marshall justice, but overall this sadly has not always been the case in the history of the names of chess openings and opening variations.
|Aug-10-13|| ||playground player: Happy birthday, Marshal Marshall (an obscure reference to a very entertaining video produced by our esteemed colleague, <Jessicafischerqueen>). Your games are, for me, a gateway to a cleaner, greener age. An age when you could enjoy a good cigar over the chess board without the Bloomberg wannabes all going postal at the same time.|
|Aug-10-13|| ||juan31: Super Maestro|
|Nov-24-13|| ||offramp: Was he definitely christened Frank and not Francis?|
|Nov-24-13|| ||RedShield: Frank(lin) James was a famous outlaw, so Marshall probably fashioned his <shoot from the hip> style on him.|
|Dec-22-13|| ||Karpova: On October 23, 1911, Marshall played a consultation game in the Vienna Chess Club against Alois Seidl, A. Pink and M. Kirschen (the consultants had Black):|
1.e4 e5 2.d4 d6 3.Nf3 Nd7 4.Bc4 c6 5.dxe5 dxe5 6.Ng5 Nh6 7.O-O Be7 8.Ne6
fxe6 9.Bxh6 Nf6 10.Bxg7 Qxd1 11.Rxd1 Rg8 12.Bxf6 Bxf6

Seidl had suggested 7...Be7 which has a bad reputation as a pawn is lost. Yet, after 9...Nf6, the Black bishop pair became so powerful, that Marshall not only went on to lose his extra pawn but drifted into a worse position. The game lasted several hours and as it had become late, a draw was agreed upon. The whole game score is not given.

|Feb-09-14|| ||Karpova: 23-board Simul in Györ on October 29, 1911: +21 -1 =1|
On October 30, he played there (and won) two Blitz tournaments: against Zoltan von Balla, Chalupetzky, Dr. Ed. Farago and Eugen Szekely with 3 points (draws against von Balla and Chalupetzky).* Marshall was in brilliant form.

* The <3 Punkte> probably means +2 -0 =2, beating Farago and Szekely, drawing von Balla and Chalupetzky. As it is reported that he won two Blitz tournaments, maybe it were two 3-player tournaments with Marshall scoring 1.5/2 in each tournament?
|Feb-14-14|| ||Karpova: On October 23 and 24, 1911, Marshall was visiting the Vienna Chess Club.|
On the first evening, he played a consultation game against Martin Kirschen, Alfred Pink and Alois Seidl. The game ended drawn after a very exciting struggle.
On the second evening, Marshall played a Simul against: Norbert Libano, Adam Ritter Zuk von Skarszewski, Dr. Karl Ritter von Lozinski, Dr. Siegmund Grünbaum, Eduard Hamlisch, Rudolf Galitzenstein, Albert Weil, Alfred Schifter, J Halumbirek, Wilhelm Ritter von Arlt, Dr. Siegmund Pollak, Alfred Neumann, Hans Feuerstein, Adalbert von Springer, Franz Balling, Erich Förster, Otto Sternberg, Siegmund Steiner, Alfred Pink, Artur Mandler and Theodor Gruber.
After 1 hour, Marshall had already won 8 games and he beat another 8 players in the next hour. The Simul lasted 2 1/4 hours overall and Marshall didn't suffer a single loss. 5 players managed draws: Libano, Hamlisch, Pollak, Pink and Gruber.
