Feb-18-06  popski: Hmm, it looks like that was Marshall a bit lucky here...
Feb-18-06  Boomie: <popski> Lucky to win, perhaps, but black is in no danger of losing. Marshall has the happy position where white must play accurately to equalize. At move 20, white should protect his pawn on f2. Black can then draw by repetition.

20. Raf1 Rd8 21. Nd4 Rxd4 22. exd4 Qxd4 23. Qc3 Qd5 24. Rd1 Nxb4+ 25. Ke3 Qe6+ 26. Kf4 Qh6+ =

The losing move is 22. Raf1, which loses material as Marshall showed. White can equalize although it requires some hard to find moves.

22. Qc3 Bd3 23. Rae1 Qe7 24. Kc1 Be4 25. Rd1 Nxd1 26. Rxd1 =

  Calli: You have to enjoy a move like 22...Rxd4+! I imagine Swiderski had a surprised look after that one.

  GrahamClayton: In the game Swiderski vs Spielmann, 1906 from earlier in the tournament, Swiderski played the inferior 13.♗c6.
Sep-12-11  Kasparovsky5: In his game against Swiderski at Ostend (1906) Marshall missed the deadly 29. ...,g5!! which is much stronger than 29. ...,Nxh2+ (which he actually played).
