Dec-05-11  AnalyzeThis: This is a very good game by Pillsbury. 13. Nd2 was cute, Maroczy didn't see the point. From that point over, Pillsbury showed good technique in bringing home the win.

1st instance of the Maroczy Blind?

Dec-21-18  RookFile: Playing over this game, I was waiting for 11. h4, with sacrificial ideas. Marshall would have played it I'm sure. But Pillsbury was a more classical attacker.
Dec-21-18  RookFile: The knight ending was really no chance for black. Pillsbury had won a nice one with even material at the 1895 Hastings, he was definitely going to win a pawn up!
