The game was inter-club play, Marshall representing the Central Chess Club of Montreal; Robert Short, the Montreal Chess Club.

This game was played on the 24th of May 1895, as part of a 10-board match. Marshall's victory over Short was the only win for the Central Chess Club in the match.

Jun-05-14  ljfyffe: GrahamClayton: oddly, the Edo site says Hilbert gives only the result of the game , yet cites page 135 upon which the full game appears. I enjoyed doing research on Marshall's early activities in Montreal for Hilbert. The book won the Cramer prize.
