How did that rook get to h1?

  eternaloptimist: it's no misprint! this game shows that draws can be interesting. the albin countergambit is interesting as well. i agree w/ <Phony> that the ♖ on h1 is indeed the highlight of the game. u don't see both players 0-0-0 very often in the same game either. marshall 1st tried to attack on the ♔side but never could cash in on it. then he shifted his pieces to the ♕side & settled for a perpetual check. the path that he took to get to that point was quite creative.
