Frank Marshall - USA

Frank Marshall (1877-1944) liked his chess playing to entertain.

😀 In this annotated game (1900) his humour is on show                    Play

The diagram position is from a blindfold simultaneous he played in 1894. Playing Black he needs to deal with his king being in check.

🤔 Which option will he take ?  - move the king, block or capture the attacking piece    Play
