  keypusher: Thanks to Von Krolock's post on this page Flohr vs Kashdan, 1933, I learned that this game gave the USA team the gold medal at the Folkstone Olympiad. It looks like chessmoron and nikolaas were already aware...
Jun-10-07  vonKrolock: <keypusher> :) The red alert switched on as Opocensky with black was visibly outplaying Simonson early in their fourth board Game - as both Kashdan and Fine had indefinite Games, Marshall could not, in the heat of the battle, trust that half of the task here would be enough...
Oct-12-17  sudoplatov: I think I read a comment by Marshall that he was originally playing for a draw then found out that a win was needed for the team victory. His comment was something like, "It was an even position, but I was playing good chess so I just kept trying." A very Alekhine or Capablanca -like comment. The game was even before move 1 too.
May-29-23  CarlosCleto: Before this last round game, USA lead Czechoslovakia by 37,5 to 35,0, so the latter was in need of a 3,5 x 0,5 score.

In "My Fifty Years of Chess", Marshall says "word came to me that Simonson and Kashdan had both lost their games and that Fine's position looked very bad. The cup seemed to be slipping from our hands. My own position was no better than my opponent's but I must now try to play for a win or the cup might be lost. It didn't look much promising, but I was playing good chess and waited for any opportunity."
