  beenthere240: If 17. Qxd4 Nxf3 and picks up the queen.
Nov-21-07  amprofff: How does black win the queen after 18. gxf3? 18... Re8+ 19. Be2.

If 17. Qxd4 Re6 18. Be2 I can't find anything good for black. 18... Qxd4 19. Rxd4 Rfe8 doesn't work because of 20. Re4 and there doesn't seem to be anything else.

Mar-05-14  yureesystem: Frank Marshall was much under appreciated, he truly one of great players of the past; he simply destroy a very strong master Napier. Pillsbury had a hard time against Napier.
Mar-05-14  JimNorCal: <yureesystem>: "Marshall was much under appreciated"

Well, Marshall had his troubles against Lasker, but I believe other players suffered from the same weakness. :)
