Cool!  Chessbase's loss seems to be ChessPub's gain.  I'll take a look at your notes in more depth later.  My chess plate is getting pretty full now, but I love to analyse the Marshall.  It's like dessert.

This game is in de chesspublishing database and the annotions are not all that good. I sent in some improvements but got a reaction back, that the notes wouldn't be revised since they were done by Motwani.
So here I've decided to post my notes  [] here:
1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.Bb5,a6 4.Ba4,Nf6 5.0-0,Be7 6.Re1,b5
7.Bb3,0-0 8.c3,d5 9.exd,Nxd 10.Nxe5,Nxe5 11.Rxe5,c6
12.Bxd5,cxd5 13.d4,Bd6 14.Re3 {Kevitz-variation} Now the notes give two continuations (A) Qc7 the main game (B) Qh4 which is given as bad.  Here are the notes on (B)
14...Qh4 15.h3,g5 [Alternatives are 15...Qf4 and 15...f5
thx to new analysis by Witomski] 16.Qf3,Be6 17.Qf6,Rae8
18.Nd2 [a not very important side-line 18.Na3 is the main line, black seems OK at the moment] 18....Be7?

[This is how two famous correspondence-players
handled this position:
18...Qf4! 19.Qxf4,Bxf4 20.Re2,Bxh3 21.Rxe8,Rxe8
22.Nf3,Bxc1 23.Rxc1, Bg4 Zagarovsky-Nymann 1968, 1/2-1/2;
Zagarovsky has been correspondence world-champion
and the author of a book on e4,e5: Romantic Chess Openings]

In the game black now comitted suicide by:
19.Qe5, h6 20.g4 and his queen was trapped.
Galkin Alexander- Jenni Florian, Yerewan 1999.



[Please note that I have not given Motwani's notes in full,
only those I had taken issue with]

This game is in de chesspublishing database and the annotions are not all that good. I sent in some improvements but got a reaction back, that the notes wouldn't be revised since they were done by Motwani.
I've also sent in notes on another game, but wont post
until I get an answer to these.

So here I've decided to post my notes  [] here:
1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.Bb5,a6 4.Ba4,Nf6 5.0-0,Be7 6.Re1,b5
7.Bb3,0-0 8.c3,d5 9.exd,Nxd 10.Nxe5,Nxe5 11.Rxe5,c6
12.Bxd5,cxd5 13.d4,Bd6 14.Re3 {Kevitz-variation} Now the notes give two continuations (A) Qc7 the main game (B) Qh4 which is given as bad.
(A) 14...Qc7 15.h3,Bf5 16.Nd2,Bh2+ 17.Kh1,Bf4 18.Rae1,Re8
At this point the notes explain blacks plans but fail to
instruct the reader what white should do:
(x) Exchange 1 bishop preferable the black squared one
(y) Temporarily close the e-file with Nf1-e3
(z) Attack black weak d-pawn Nf3
19.Nf1[Nf3],Bd6 20.Bg5? [Ne3] 20...Qd7 21.Qd2 [21.Ne3,Bxh3 22.Qf3,Be6 23.Nxd5]
21..Bxh3! 22.gxh? [22.Bf4] ,Qxh3+ 23.Kg1,Qg4+
here the game xplits in (x) Ng3 game and (y) Kh1

(x)24.Ng3,h6 25.Be3 [Bxh6 last chance to put up resistance] 25...Bxg3 26.fx, Qxg3 and black won in a few moves.
(y)24.Kh1,h6 25.Be3 [again Bxh6 best chance],Qf3+
26.Kg1,Re4[better Re6] And now the notes mention that
"27.Qe2 Let's look at this particular resource; illustrates the sort of resource that can keep white in the fight"

[Okay lets look at it
27Qe2,Qh3! and now what:
*27.Nxg3,Bxg3 28.hxg3,Qxg3 29.Qg2,Rxe3 wins like the game
*27.f4 {this is why 26...Re6 was better than Re4} 27...Bxf
28.Qg2,Bxe3+ 29.Nxe3,Rxe3 30.Qxh3,Rxh3 31.Re5,Rd8
32.Rae1,b4! -+{the minority-attack is an important weapon for black with this kind of pawn structure}
