Chess Engines Tournament,Marshall Attack


History of the Marshall Attack
Frank Marshall brought this ploy into the world back in 1918. His opponent was the Cuban maestro Jose Raul Capablanca. Frank J Marshall was the strongest US player of the day having won the US Championship several times. He was also one of the strongest players in the world.But Capablanca was one of only a handful of players that Marshall just couldn’t handle. They had played back in 1909 Capablanca had demolished him 8-1 with 14 draws. Half of Capa’s wins had come when he had played the Ruy Lopez with the White pieces. Marshall had not played the Ruy Lopez with Black since that massacre. Secretly however he worked long and hard on a brand new system to beat it.He waited for so long for a chance to play his new anti-Ruy Lopez system against Capa in a big tournament game. Finally after 9 long years his opportunity had arrived.
