Jul-31-05  SneechLatke: It's hard to believe that Janowski's 12.♕g4 may have been the decisive error! Marshall takes advantage and shows his skill with the "cool" ♗d7, following it with a further sacrifice of the exchange with ♖xf1+!

  NM JRousselle: Marshall's 13 Nd4!! is amazing. I don't think I would have considered this move.

It's the 2 piece rule James, you should know that ;-)

Mar-01-21  Gaito: A very energetic attacking game by the great Frank J. Marshall. He neatly took advantage of Janowsky's mistake 12.Qg4? (Correct was 12.Qd2 or 12.Be2).12.Qg4? was the only mistake made by Janowsky, but Marshall didn't need more mistakes to shine. A beautiful and instructive short game. In the final position Black can mate in 6 moves according to the engine.
Mar-01-21  sudoplatov: It's hard to win giving Rook odds. Janowski gave Marshall Double Rook odds and paid the price.

  GrahamClayton: When Marshall starts his mating attack with 14...Qa5, all of his pieces are still on the back rank.

  fredthebear: If White responds to the check by interposing with 17.b3, then Black will sacrifice the bishop 17...Bxb3+. White should eventually succumb whether he accepts or declines the sacrifice offer. See diagram:

White is in trouble regardless of response.

Feb-28-22  Sally Simpson: This is Game One in 'Learn Chess from the Masters' (formerly 'Chess by Yourself') by Fred Reinfeld. 1946.

A forerunner of the 'How Good Is Your Chess' series where you have to guess the moves and get awarded points depending on your choice.

Black to play.

I received a very generous 8 points for Black's move here. You are Black, you are Marshall, what else are you going to play? ( 13..Nxd4 )
