[Quote from: "neilo"]How far ahead would he have planned that? Would he have seen that possibility 5 moves before, say?



Oddly, I have never seen an annotation of the full game. Whenever this game appears in print, the articles concentrate just on the beauty and unexpectedness of the final move. Actually, most of the game up to this point was rather dull. All of which leads me to believe that Marshall just saw the shot when it became available and it wasn't planned much, if at all, beforehand.



Just like me then!!

However, the pin of the f-pawn associated with an opposing rook on the half-open file does arise in a number of opening traps (especially in conjunction with a weakened back rank).

So though the combination probably wasn't planned far in advance, the position contains elements of a pattern that Marshall recognized, and so he was probably already on "high alert" for some potential violent tactics.

Legend has it that the spectators dropped gold coins on the board after Levitzky resigned. Marshall himself said that this story is apocryphal, and it makes sense since the average chess fan (especially back in 1912) doesn't have gold coins that he can so spuriously throw away. Still, even if the story isn't true, it should be.
