  plang: Marshall's pawn sacrifice 18..f5 was insufficient and Maroczy was able to steer the game into a pawn down ending. If 58 a4 then 58..Kd3 59 Rc1..Kd2 leads to a repetition. Maroczy's clever triangulation maneuver starting with 58 Rc1 led to him gaining a tempo after 61..Ke4. Note that if 58..Kd3 59 Rd1+ and 60 Rd6.
Jan-25-12  berbanz: This Petroff to Three Knights transposition re-appeared in the 4th Meralco Training Simul for MVP Olympics 2012 conducted by FM Leo Carlos on Board 1 vs Rolly Sol Cruz. However, Sol Cruz continued with 5 a3 and, to make the story short, FM Carlos won in the endgame. The simul result was 7W-0L for FM Carlos.

  AylerKupp: <plang> Yes, Marshall got insufficient compensation for his pawn sac by 18...f5. I don't understand why he went into it; material is reduced and White's pieces are just as active as Black's, so there doesn't seem to be any likely tactical possibilities in the future. So, in the absence of specific tactical threats, the pawn sac seems to be a lost cause. But obviously Marshall was more optimistic than I am.
Dec-29-21  Mathematicar: Methodical and quiet victory.
