  Honza Cervenka: Marshall's attempt to solve troubles with weak Pe6 by tactical complications led only to more troubles for him. Quite smooth win for Maroczy.
Dec-08-16  RookFile: After 14 moves, I prefer black's position. Marshall tried too hard to win.

  Honza Cervenka: 15...Re7 was the beginning of black's woes here. He apparently wanted to double Rooks on e-file but he did not notice a problem with a pin on e-file, which led to the creation of weak Pawn e6 a few moves later. Instead of 16...Rd8 it was also better to play 16...Rd7 to avoid that.

  Mateo: It seems that 24...a6? loses a pawn. 24...c6 should be more accurate. 25.b4 Nb7 26.Bc4 Rxb4 is quiet different. If 27.Rxe6 Rxe6 28.Rxe6, now Black can play 28...Na5. One can see the difference. It's possible to defend the c pawn meanwhile in the game Black loses this pawn.

  Count Wedgemore: Wouldn't it be better to keep the rook on the a-file with 28...Rxa4, I wonder?

In the game Black played 28...Nc5, and after 29.Rc6 attacking the knight, White had to take Black's a4-pawn with the knight (29...Nxa4) instead of taking it with the rook. After 28...Rxa4, Black is protecting his a6-passer with the rook instead of leaving it unprotected.
