My Fifty Years of Chess
A Magnificent Collection of 140 Brilliant GamesProduct Code: B0355IS
Frank Marshall was United States Chess Champion for 27 years. He was also the first American player able to sustain himself as one of the top players in the world for an extended period of time. Marshall was in the first group of five players to be awarded the Grandmaster title. He along with Lasker, Capablanca, Tarrasch and Alekhine were awarded the grandmasters title by Czar Nicholas II of Russia in 1914, as they were the five top finishers at St. Petersberg 1914.
Known for an aggressive style and an ability to get out of trouble that earned him the nickname "the Great Swindler", Marshall recorded both high finishes and disappointing results in elite tournaments. His best result came at Cambridge Springs 1904 where he finished two points ahead of Lasker and David Janowski. This helped him find backing for the Lasker-Marshall World Championship Match in 1907.
