at this stage, i wonder why Marshall didn't offer his hand of resignation, game finally ended on move 50.

Eh? Are we looking at the same game? To me, this doesn't look remotely 'solid'. I admit that Horowitz plays well - solidly, even - to win the point, but what I find most impressive about this game is not its solidity. White's initial winning attempt is somehow held off by Black, but Horowitz renews the attack and eventually succeeds. It's a tribute to persistence.

  Domdaniel: For example, 17.Rfc1, inviting ...gxf4, is a wonderful conception, yet it seems to lead to little more than equality. After this, White has to win the game all over again...
