"23. ♘xf7? ♕f6 and the knight is trapped."

Not quite. 24.Nd6+ and the Knight escapes.

Some nifty and well calculated play by Schlechter. 24...Qxg2!

A move Marshall had probably thought unplayable due the b6 Knight hanging.

24..Qxg2 25.axb6 Qf1+ 26.Kd2 Qxf4+ 27.Kd3 Qe4+ Black picks up the White Knight with a winning position.
