Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-10-04  Gowe: This game have to be wrong. Because there is a mate in 31. Qg7++
Premium Chessgames Member
  akiba82: It appears Spielmann just overlooked the mate in one. It doesn't matter though as Black has no defense to the mate on g7 or h8.

  Calli: <akiba82> Exactly. This is the correct score. My guess is that time control was at move 30 and the players made some quick moves at the end. Marshall then realized it was hopeless.
Nov-11-04  sneaky pete: ?? Black played 30... Rfxf4 according to the tounament book. I posted a kibitz (disappeared) and <suggest your correction> yesterday.

  Calli: ah okay. All the DBs have this wrong. Probably a translation error. Muchias gratias
Nov-11-04  capanegra: However, even if the score was correct, it wouldn't have been the first time a Grand Master overlook a mate in one. I invite you to take a look at my humble collection: Game Collection: When masters overlook mate
Nov-12-04  sneaky pete: <capanegra> Nice collection. Take a look at Kasparov vs C Tambasco, 2004.
Nov-12-04  capanegra: <sneaky pete> Thanks! Any more suggestion would be appreciated.
Nov-12-04  delterp: Something must have been corrected.
31) Qg7 is not mate. The rook on g4 is the sole protector of that square. That is why Rxf4 was played.

  tpstar: The previous comments related to 30 ... Rgxf4 which has since been corrected to 30 ... Rfxf4 - thanks Webmasters!
