|Jun-27-14|| ||ljfyffe: For Marshall-G.K. Powell (1916), see Simultanees de Marshall a Toronto by Larry Fyffe in Au Nom Au Roi p.92|
|Jul-12-14|| ||wwall: But the Nov-Dec issue of American Chess Bulletin said that when they met after 23 years, at the Hotel Shelton in New York, neither one could remember whose move it was, so they did not finish the game started 23 years ago. Instead, they played three rapid transit games, Marshall winning two and drawing one.|
|Jul-12-14|| ||IFNB: I'm curious what Marshall would rate if he were time warped into the present day.|
|Jul-12-14|| ||RookFile: I think he's be about Nakamura's level. Just a notch below the top.|
|Jul-25-14|| ||ljfyffe: Alas, time-wraping is science FICTION.|
|Aug-10-14|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. World Championship Challenger, Frank James Marshall.|
|Aug-10-14|| ||ljfyffe: Be a great poet, be a great chess player...and live forever.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||MissScarlett: Seems likely that he was named after Frank James, brother of Jesse. He was born in 1877, shortly after the James' gang had reached the apex of their infamy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesse_...|
|Aug-12-14|| ||ljfyffe: Charles and Benjamin were two of Frank Marshall's brothers(Hilbert), but contemporary supporting evidence of some sort or another is surely needed to make it more than mere speculation that he's the namesake of an American outlaw.|
|Aug-13-14|| ||ljfyffe: On the othet hand, few would argue that the notorious outlaw John Wesley Hardin wasn't named after the famous Methodist preacher John Wesley , but then the situation is quite reversed, as that concerning Marshall's name. None other than Bob Dylan transformed the outlaw Hardin into a preacher of a kind whom, he wrote, robbed the rich to give to the poor while holding a gun "in every hand".|
|Aug-13-14|| ||ljfyffe: That of course should be "of whom, he wrote..." in the immediate above.
By the way, is "anal retentive" spelt with a hyphen?|
|Aug-13-14|| ||ljfyffe: And there is evidence that collaborates from whence Hardin got his first and second names: his father was a Methodist preacher. ("Yes, it is", referring to the question above.)|
|Aug-14-14|| ||ljfyffe: Charles Harding, Saint John, NB, 1891 chess champion, is no relation to the outlaw. Dylan (Zimmerman) added a "g" to the outlaw's name in a ballad.|
|Aug-15-14|| ||ljfyffe: Bob Dylan states that he took his name from the famous poet Dylan Thomas, not TV's Marshall Dillon, who got his name from the famous chessplayer Frank Marshall (just kidding about the last part!)|
|Aug-15-14|| ||Granny O Doul: Don't know about "named for", but I remember Dmitry Gurevich reporting in Chess Life that Larry Christiansen was related to John Dillinger, and that one could see the fact reflected in his chess.|
|Aug-15-14|| ||ljfyffe: Kept escaping from tight situations? Or he carried a submachine gun?|
|Aug-16-14|| ||ljfyffe: And as far as the poet Robert Lee Frost's name goes, well, that's a road I'm not going to take.|
|Aug-30-14|| ||ljfyffe: Spelling error:that should be Marshal Dillon.|
|Oct-30-14|| ||ljfyffe: Interesting quote in reference to F.J. Marshall
at 1896 NYSCA tournament:<Among the
contestants in the general tourney was the young
Canadian player, F.(J.) Marshall, formally of Montreal, but now a resident of Brooklyn.>
St. John Globe, Feb. 28, 1896.
|Oct-30-14|| ||diceman: <ljfyffe:
By the way, is "anal retentive" spelt with a hyphen?>
|Oct-31-14|| ||ljfyffe: Or to be half-ass about the whole thing: semi-colon.|
|Dec-06-14|| ||ljfyffe: <"After the Christmas holidays in 1893, the first
event of consequence that captured Marshall's
interest was the Twenty-first Canadian Chess Association Congress, conveniently held that year at his home club. The Congress opened on Tuesday 16, 1894, with entry remaining open for
the championship of Canada until noon the next day. Eight competitors, six from Montreal along with the well-respected James E. Narraway of
Ottawa and A.T. Davison of Toronto, entered the
lists of the double-round affair. The out-of-town
players had great success. Davison won the championship with a scoreof 9.5-4.5 with Narraway in second a full point behind. D.C. Robertson and Robrert Short tied for third and fourth at 7.5-6.5, with Marshall, fifth at 7-7. The three remaining players, including J.P. Cooke,
the 1893 Montreal Chess Champion, Joseph N.
Babson, and William H. Hicks, were badly outclassed, with Cooke finishing sixth withwith a 4-10 score. As the crosstable for the event reveals, Marshall, though finishingwith an even score, managed to defeat the champion, Davison,
2-0, while splitting his games with Narraway, thus finishing with an excellennt 3-1 record against the two top finishers."> Young Marshall

|Dec-19-14|| ||1d410: Just discovered this player. What great games!|
|Dec-20-14|| ||ljfyffe: <1d410>Marshall, of course, did not have all the resources that the great players of today have..so to make such comparisons is really a mug's game..I researched quite a bit for "Young Marshall" during the time when Frank was a "Canadian" lad.|
|Dec-20-14|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi 1d410,
"Just discovered this player. What great games!"
One of my all time heroes. There is no doubt at all his play and attitude to the game inspired me.
I Did a whole piece on him which went down well....and I did not show or use the 'gold coins game.'
