|May-18-08|| ||ToTheDeath: When Marshall saced the knight on h7, he scribbled a "?!" for questionable on his scoresheet. Of course the move is actually winning, but Marshall never needed a reason to sac pieces.|
|Mar-14-13|| ||wachter123680: This was an exciting game... Marshall's tactics to take the rooks are worth further study.|
|Mar-14-13|| ||wachter123680: Marshall real played a two knights game. I don't think Wolf understood the tactics that were approaching by mid-game.|
|Mar-14-13|| ||wachter123680: Marshall had a strong knight bishop combo attack planned. Wolf was complete lacking on this point..?|
|Jul-04-13|| ||RookFile: 15...Ba8 seems like an extravagant waste of time. Maybe he has less problems moving the queen off the c file, e.g. Qb8 or Qe7.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||offramp: It looks at move 18 as if the game is going to end in a few moments.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||Old King Cole: At the end, a seesaw checking pattern is threatened (a key point being g7), perhaps hence the pun. In the middle, 20 Qh5, with its combination, is grand, classic Marshall. Earlier, 10 ... c4 is avoided.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||Ratt Boy: I had to ask Mr. Google, in order to figure out the pun. Turns out, a "Marshall Stack" is a bunch of amplifiers piled on top of one another to get the huge volume that rock bands are looking for. Seems The Who was the first band to use a Marshall Stack.
That is all.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||Robed.Bishop: <Ratt Boy> Yes, very famous amplifiers for those in the music business. Jim Marshall, the man behind the company, just died recently.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||morfishine: Lets see, Marshall stacked the deck. No, no, thats not it: He was famous for swindles but would never stack the deck|
Ok, Marshall's opponent didn't stack up? No, thats not it
All right now, lets see, I got it! Marshall was famous for the gold piece game, so this game is an analogy on stacks of money? Right? No, thats not it
Stacks, Stacks, I got it! Smoke stacks! Marshall smoked his opponent! Thats gotta be it, No...
Ok I give up and Google...
Amplifiers? Oh, I get it, Marshall made a lot of noise with this game? Sounds plausible, but not likely...
Lemme see, Band, music, rock music, rock concert...Thats it! Marshall's pieces worked in perfect concert! Yes, that must be it...No, doesn't sound right
|Jul-04-13|| ||Check It Out: I can't believe you guys had to google Marshall Stacks!|
I play through a Marshall 212 combo myself. I cannot abide with lugging stacks around; that's for 20-somethings and roadies.
|Jul-04-13|| ||bunbun: nice pun, not unlike the rooks in the final position!...hmmm but this site gots too many classical & smooth jazz listeners with no clue about marshall stacks LOL|
|Jul-04-13|| ||morfishine: <Check It Out> I find it quite revealing and enjoyable when someone points out something from my era (Credence, Zep and Floyd) that I wasn't aware of :) |
I'd never heard of Marshall Stacks but I have heard of Clapton, Page and Hendrix
|Jul-04-13|| ||The17thPawn: Marshall's only victory against Mr. Wolf. Old Heinrich was quite a player and capable of beating just about anyone.|
|Jul-04-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Even more amazing is Wolf's record against Chigorin:|
True, all these game were played after Chigorin's prime, but it's still one of the more inexplicable results in chess history.
|Jul-04-13|| ||morfishine: <Phony Benoni> Wow, an incredible statistic: Wolf won every game vs Chigorin! Fascinating|
|Jul-04-13|| ||Rama: Oh, come on. Look at the posish after 26. Rfd1. See the stacks?|
|Jul-05-13|| ||kevin86: a checkmate will come soon-sooner if the holder of the black pieces cries:PERSON.|
|May-13-17|| ||tpstar: 20. Qh5!! gxh5? 21. Bh7# would be a Blackburne Mate:|
