Marshall annotated the following game in his book My Fifty Years of Chess. This game (from move 16 onward) is also annotated as position #262 in Combinations - The Heart of Chess by Chernev. Chernev comments, "That Pillsbury in this position would be mated in less than ten [more] moves seems incredible, but he is -- and artistically!"
