17...Kf7. Now 18. Ne5+ looks very strong.

Things don't look good. Black's bishops are very weak! But Marshall tries a combination that doesn't quite come off.
25.Qxg7 Bxg7
26.h8=Q+ Bxh8
27.Rxh8+ Ke7
28.Rxd8 Rxd8
29.Rg1 Rg8.

Now things aren't so bad, and if, later on, Jaffé had played 33...Rxg6, he might have drawn.
