  wwall: Looks like another Marshall swindle. White (Marshall) should have lost. After 42.dxc4, instead of 42...Ra5, Black should play 42...Ra7! 43.cxd5 Raxf7. If 44.Rxf7, then 44...Rxf7 45.dxc6 Rf6 and Black should win.

Same after 44.c4. Instead of 44...d4+, best seems 44...Ra7 45.cxd5 Raxf7, threatening 46...Rxf2. If 46.Rh2, then 46...Rf3+ 47.Ke2 Kd7 should win for Black.

After 45.Ke4, instead of 45...Rc5, Black looks better after 45...Kd7. If 46.f4 exf4 47.Kxf4 Ke7 and 48...Rxf7.

  nizmo11: 29...Nxh4 was a bad mistake. After this Marshall was better and could have won a piece with 34. Rg8+ Kd7 35. Rxg6.
