Oct-07-16  Aunt Jemima: Marshall played a nice, neat, careful game and got off with a draw. The ending was a bit sharp but he hung in there.

  plang: Already 3..Bg4 was a new move. 5 h3 was of questionable value making kingside castling difficult. Black was doing well in the opening; 11..Qe7 would have been more ambitious. Again, 14..Ba3+ would have been more logical (15 Bb2..e5). Not 42 f5?..c6! and White will have to give up his rook to avoid mate (43 b4..Kc4 mates). 42..a4? was a blunder; better was necessary was 42..axb+ 43 Kxb4..Rc4+ 44 Kxb5..c6+ followed by ..Rxf4 with good drawing chances. Nimzovich missed the winning 44 e6!..Rc3+ 45 Kb2..cxb 46 Rd7+; in the game Rd7+ was not available and the game was agreed drawn.
