  FSR: Ouch! Marshall fell for a funny tactic -- his 23.Nxd2 discovered check (??) was met by 23...c4 discovered check winning his queen! Instead 23.Qa2! looks ghastly for Black. This must have been one of the last games of Marshall's life.
Nov-01-07  syracrophy: 23.♘xd2+?? c4+!! The worst discovered check and the best discovered check, both together on the same move!
Jan-30-11  crawfb5: This game is from a simul where Marshall scored +17 -1 =6. This one loss was to a high school student, 17-year old Samuel Shapiro, attending Townsend Harris Hall in Queens, NY. (Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 30 Mar 1944, p. 15)

This simul took place about seven months before Marshall's death.

  FSR: There was probably a typo on move 29. I greatly doubt Marshall missed 30.Nxd3. My guess is that Black actually played 29...Qd1+.

  Phony Benoni: The score from BDE, March 30, 1944, does indeed have 29...Qd1+.

The <New York Sun>, March 24, 1944, states the simul was played "yesterday", and specifically mentions Shapiro's victory.
