I didn’t play last Thursday (had to take a bye), so I decided to post a correspondence chess game that I won recently. It’s a thematic Ruy Lopez tournament, I was Black and played Marshall attack, here is the game. I would define Marshall attack as “fast and furious” and I think I was able to follow that definition in this game. White’s move 16. Nd2 was too slow, allowing 16… f5 and 17… f4, and then a mistake let Black to make a typical sacrifice. White’s 25. Bf4 was the best, still losing an exchange and getting into the lost endgame.
