  Honza Cervenka:, this magnificent game from Vienna Gambit Tournament 1903 wasn't played by Harry Nelson Pillsbury, but Frank Marshall.

  Honza Cervenka: I am absolutely sure in this case. I have a bulletin from that tournament, which Chigorin won (+12=2-4) ahead of Marshall (+10=3-5) and Marco (+9=4-5). It contains all games included this one. You can find it also in the database of

Avoiding the hopeless continuation
36.♘xf6 ♗xd4 37.♘g8+ ♔d6 38.♔e4 ♗g8! 39.d4 h5 and white can resign. After the text, the endindg is still interesting and difficult.

I'm reading the Marshall's book, and he is definitely my hero. Descriptive notation is quite difficult to go through though.
