  Calli: A tragedy. Marshall outplays Rubinstein and then blunders :-(

  offramp: The finish will be Kg1 Qxg4+ Kf1 Qe1#
Apr-09-12  Karpova: 30.Qf6? was the mistake while <White has a considerable advantage after 30.Qh4!> - Tartakower.

30...Qc5! <But now Black has the advantage! Rubinstein's play from here till the end is excellent.>

Die späte Abendstunde hat der nun kommenden Schlußphase eine besonders melancholische Note verliehen. - Unter Ansammlung sämtlicher, indessen bereits freigewordener Turnierteilnehmer folgt noch:">

But there Marshall's agony lasted 4 plies less than above (56 instead of 58 moves, delete 49.. Qc3 50.Re3 Qd2+ 51.Re2).
