castle dweller: fine notes too - serendipity happens to all of us from time to time - I can relate here.
   May-18-11 S P Johnston vs Marshall, 1899 (replies)
castle dweller: Hey LMAJ, I was just curious - about how many books are there on Marshall, either by him or by others?
   May-16-11 R Primavera vs Jansa, 1976 (replies)
castle dweller: <sevenseaman: Elementary, Mr Watson! (Clue; 'A moan may not' = another 4-word anagram.)mate in 3> Nice one! Thinking it was the knight that had to get things started (due to the pin), I could only find mate in about 6-7 moves for white, beginning with N-f5. Finally ...

castle dweller: <TheBish I don't know if there was a change in personnel at CG, but don't the "easy" problems seem a little harder?> . . . My thought was that someone at "headquarters" had taken their two-week vacation - and we were feeling the consequences!
   Apr-02-11 Ivanchuk vs V Erdos, 2011 (replies)
castle dweller: I really like the fact that by forcing black to take the rook, it led to white being able to push his pawn coupled with the discovered check on the black king - setting himself up into a more favorable position whilst grabbing pawns. That inititive, at that moment, seems ...

castle dweller: It took me a bit but I thought this was an easy one - as far as Saturday puzzles go, no? Others agree?? Usually, I have a much harder time but today it was pretty much just pile on down black's weak e-file! My only concern was black refusal to take the sac and play Rce8 ...

castle dweller: All timing issues aside, I like the way that this game graphically illustrates the flaws in the programming - it is really a fairly straightforward and comic illustration. Well done.

castle dweller: <MaczynskiPratten> I happen to have Marshall's autobiography "My Fifty Years of Chess", in which he recounts the game in some detail. A great read. In it, he recounts the elation with which his opponent makes the second-to-last move of the game (thinking he has sealed a
   Apr-01-11 Marshall vs F Duz-Khotimirsky, 1911 (replies)
castle dweller: Marshall humorously recounts this game, blow-by-blow, in his autobiography "My Fifty Years of Chess". I happen to have an original copy of the book - and it may be that the story in TCPBB was taken from there. In his autobiography, Marshall goes into alot more detail about ...
   Mar-22-11 S Salihu vs Urkedal, 2008 (replies)
castle dweller: I noticed Be6 first, saw it would suffice and never looked for anything else. This one really seems like a "monday" to me. As for the debate, I had thought that the more forcing moves were considered the "best" - but beauty is ultimately in the eye of the beholder!
