Apr-13-05  InspiredByMorphy: 21.Nxg5 looks better to me. The text move doesent make good use of the passed pawn.
Apr-13-05  paladin at large: <InspiredByMorphy>Perhaps Marshall thought that by the text move he would have more pressure to ensure at least a draw - he is a pawn down with no appreciable attacking chances - by having the passed pawn a step further and on a file with the queening square covered by his bishop.
