  Everett: A 40 move game is not a crush. 2nd, Adams played merely 4 games as black with the Marshall at this point, hardly "his" opening at the time, eh?

Jun-03-04  Abdooss: This must be the moment Mickey is convinced of the potent of Marshall Attack. And the need to mix bar activities (drinking) and chess ideas swapping... instead of just focusing on the former. :-)..too bad he is just into chess, if he is into martial arts as well, surely he'll be a GrandMaster of the Drunken Kungfu!:-P
