  Honza Cervenka: 7.Qxb7 Nd4 8.Qe4 Nf6 9.Qd3 Bxc4! looks fine for black.

Marshall could have played much better 33.b4! instead of drawish 33.Rxb7. After 33.b4 checks of black lead to nothing good for him, for example 33...Rd3+ 34.Kh4 Qh2+ 35.Kg5 h6+ 36.Kxg6 Rd6+ 37.Kh7 and white wins. Also 33...axb4 34.axb4 Ka6 35.Qe8! Ka7 (what else?) 36.Qxc6 is lost for black who can stop the threatening mate only via exchange of Queens (36...Qe3+ 37.Rxe3 bxc6) with absolutely hopeless Rook endgame.
