  GrahamClayton: Nice line block by Marshall with 31...♖f2, eliminating the threat to f7. The rook can't be taken due to 32...♖e1+ and 32...♖xf1#.
Jul-10-14  heuristic: this won the brilliancy prize. it's a great game!
the difference in development by 16. is astonishing.

better is 22.g4 Qh4 23.Bf1 Nf6

more forcing than 27...Nb2 is 27... Ne3 28.Qe1 Rd3 29.Rc1

the Q needs to be active in the defense. 28.Qf3 Rc8 29.Rf1 Rc7

although 31..Rf2 is slick,
31... Nd3 looks crushing. 32.Qd5 Nf2+ 33.Kg1 Ng4 with Ne3 next

34.Qd5 loses! push the pawn 34.d5 Re5 35.g4 Nd1 36.d6 and possibly draw

Feb-07-16  TheFocus: In this game, Marshall was awarded the Delmar Brilliancy Prize, donated by the children of Eugene Delmar, for the finest game played in this tournament.
