Sep-24-09  WhiteRook48: Marshall had the attack instead
Oct-11-09  hedgeh0g: Marshall does not let up! He's like a Rottweiler in this game with the initiative and rightly so - one inaccurate move on his part would have been answered by consolidation from his opponent.
Sep-14-10  sevenseaman: Marshall is absolutely cocky about his plan. He seems to have worked it out in advance and is not to be deflected. It is surgically precise in tackling contingencies.

I love this kind of execution and now know why it took some really great players to keep Frank Marshall in check.

  SteinitzLives: This game was referred to in "The Golden Treasury of Chess" by Horowitz as the "Daredevils Challenge", truly an apt title. In this game, no one defends unless absolutely forced to by the rules of chess!
Jun-16-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: MARSHAL offers every MAJOR.
Mar-07-12  lemaire90: Greatest pun ever.
May-14-12  Llawdogg: Wow! Marshall was a great tactician.
May-14-12  morphyesque: In "Marshall's Best Games of Chess" (1942), (formerly titled "My Fifty Years of Chess"), Marhall makes the comment to his 12th move that he heard Janowski whisper "Swindle".Of course he could not take the Queen for then follows 13....BH3+ 14.KG1 RE8+ 15.BF1 RXF1 mate.This combination is very reminiscent of Morphy's famous 6th final game against Paulsen (New York 1857).
Sep-06-13  billrj: Couldn't Marshall have moved
13...Bh6
with mate in a move or two?
Sep-06-13  billrj: Sorry, I meant 13...Bh3
Sep-06-13  Zkid: <billrj> I think 14.Rg1 is the problem there.
Feb-13-16  SimplicityRichard: <JimmyVermeer: Marshall could have won faster: 19.Rc1 Rxc2 20.Re1??

1. Why Re1 and not Rxc2?

2. 20...Rc6? How can Black play Rc6 when his rook is at a8?

I feel your variation and assertion is incorrect. You missed something in your calculation.

Conclusion: Marshall played brilliantly!#

Aug-22-17  jinkinson: <SimplicityRichard> After 19. Rc1 Rxc2 20. Rxc2, Black can win by playing 20...Re8 21. Rc1 (or Bc3) Re6 followed by either Rg6# or Re1#.
Aug-23-17  Ang Dalubhasa: I love this game.

  ChessHigherCat: 20. Black to move would be the ultimate Wed. puzzle
Apr-08-18  Saniyat24: What a position reached after 20...R8e3..!!
Aug-04-18  pawnpro: dan should have 0-0 on move 7

  NM JRousselle: 20 ... R8e3 looks nice, but Rxc2 is better.

A Widenmann vs L Tack, 1985 <Our Base Is Under A Tack>, or anything else from me (myself). I'm the funniest contributor ever.

  Messiah: <faulty> If possible, V S Gujrathi vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2020 is even better, as the game itself is very good.
