  An Englishman: Good Evening: I'm surprised Marshall didn't brag a little bit more about this game. He does a good job of handling the defense for the fewest moves possible before he can start throwing material at White with yet another patented Marshall-style "where did this come from?" attack. Even his last move is precise; White must either allow the decisive Rook capture with check or walk into 35.Kd5,Qe6X

I also like the diamond formation with Pb5, Pd7, Pf5 and Qd3.

Aug-08-07  CapablancaFan: Marshall starts sacraficing,and sacraficing, and sacraficing...LOL.
Aug-08-07  whatthefat: Wild game indeed.

P.S. <CapablancaFan>, it's sacr<i>ficing. And while I'm being a jerk, the statement: <World champion from 1921-1927, he is the only player to have won the world title by defeating the incumbent in a match without losing a game> from your profile is not correct.

Aug-08-07  CapablancaFan: <whatthefat> Hey, I was educated in Peru, what do you expect. Anyways, who else defeated a WC current title holder WITHOUT losing a game? Was it Karpov maybe?
Aug-08-07  whatthefat: Kramnik.
Aug-08-07  CapablancaFan: <whatthefat> Ok, thanks.
Mar-15-09  cyclemath: There's a mate in two that Marshall missed here, with 32. ... Qe3, followed by Qc5, Qd4 or Qe6 depending on the White response.
