  Chessical: In a Queen's Gambit Declined Frank Marshall whips up a K-side attack, but Duras defends well hitting back at Marshall's weak e pawn.

30...Kf7?? overlooks the following sacrifice; 30...Qe4=

31.Rxg7+! Marsahll is his element demolishing Duras's K-side pawn structure. If <31...Ke8> 32.Rh8+ Rf8 33.Rxe7+ Kxe7 34.Qh4+ Kd7 35.Qh7+ Kd6 36.Qh6+ Kc7 37.Rxf8

Mate is inevitable 35.Qxb7+ Kd8 36.Qxe7+ Kc8 37.Qc7 mate

Jul-15-18  TheFocus: Marshall in <My Fifty Years of Chess> ends this game after move 31.Rxg7+ 1-0. The moves 31...Kxg7 - 35.Qxb7 mate above are all analysis by Marshall which concludes to mate after 35...Kd8 36.Qxe7+ Kc8 37.Qc7 mate.
Jul-16-18  sudoplatov: I like the comment in the tournament notes about Marshall being shown (1st round) how he should play chess.

Marshall had a few good tournaments around this time and a few bad matches. C'est l'échecs.
