Jan-04-06  twinlark: Not sure that 4.f4 refutes the Albin, and Marshall certainly didn't find the answer over the board.

Black's sac of a couple of pawns for the exchange was always going to be a dodgy trade, something which becomes evident when White completely ignores Black's offer to return the exchange at 43...Re8 with 44. Kd3.

Very nicely played game by Baird.
