Feb-27-04  RonB52734: 30.h3, Bxf2+. 31.Kh2, Bxe1+. 32.Kh1, Qc6+. 33.Kg1, Qg2++. Lunch hour's over, so I'll have to get back to this.
Feb-27-04  RonB52734: 30.h3, Bxf2+. 31.Kh2, Bxe1+. 32.Qxd2, Nf3 and white loses queen, with rook+queen mate inevitable. 30.h3, Bxf2+. 31.Kh1, Qc6+. 32. Kh1, Be3++.
30.h3, Bxf2+. 31.Kf1, Qa6++.
Those seem to me to be the only possibilities. Of course, if not 30.h3, then 30 ... Qxg7++

  Gypsy: <RonB52734> I presume you ment 30.g3. But that is most simply refuted by 31.Qxg3+ and 32.Qg2#. The only other way to stave off the immediate Qg2# is by 30.g4, which is much better than the g3, but it still leaves White at least a rook down and mate pending: 30.g4 Bxf2+ 31.Kf1 (31.Kh1 Qc6+; 31.Kh2 Bxe1+) Rxe1+ 32.Rxe1 Bxe1 33.Kxe1 Rh2 .

  Retireborn: Black should have played 22...Nf3+ 23.gxf3 exf3 24.Kh2 Bf6! 25.Rxe8+ Rxe8 26.c3 Re2 winning. After Marshall's 22...Ng6 White can hold the draw with 23.Be3 Nh4 24.Kh1! Qg6 25.Rg1
Oct-18-14  TheFocus: This win by Marshall was the Second Brilliancy Prize winner.
Feb-06-16  TheFocus: Two brilliancy prizes were donated by Baron Albert de Rothschild.

The second prize of 200 crowns was awarded to Marshall for his victory over Mieses.

Feb-25-18  sudoplatov: It's amusing to see Marshall's pieces march over the Kingside Indian file. Each one gets exchanged off until White runs out of defenders.

This gambit in both the French and Sicilian isn't considered sound. Still, White loses a few tempi protecting the Pawn; dangerous against Marshall.
