Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-07  aazqua: I wonder if Marshall could stop patting himself on the back long enough to consider 14 Q*P followed by 15 R*P if g6 or N*P for just about anything else. It would certainly be more interesting than his rather pedestrian continuation.

  FSR: I'm sure Marshall saw 14.Qxh6, but rejected it because he didn't want to deal with 14...Qe3+ 15.Qxe3 Rxe3 16.Nxd5 Rxe2. His 14.Rg3 stopped the queen check and ensured that he would win by an attack on the king rather than in an ending.
