|Jul-20-11|| ||Bobsterman3000: The d6 bishop dominated for Leko|
|Jul-20-11|| ||Marmot PFL: Seems like white never wins in the main line Marshall, aside from the occasional postal game.|
|Jul-20-11|| ||JonathanJ: that's really leko?|
|Jul-20-11|| ||HeMateMe: Hard to believe the lone Queen wins against all of the material. Marshall Gambit is not played out.|
|Jul-20-11|| ||Shams: <HeMateMe> Yes, and neither is the Marshall Attack-- amazing that Marshall conceived two such daring gambits, and a hundred years on they remain not just viable but vibrant lines. Pretty remarkable.|
|Jul-20-11|| ||geeker: Funny: yesterday I was all set to start in with the Leko draw jokes, but refrained. The very next day he wins an exciting game!|
|Jul-21-11|| ||DrMAL: Crazy game. 30.Bg2? The rest just gets uglier...|
|Jul-21-11|| ||hedgeh0g: I really don't know why White bothers to walk into the Marshall anymore. Such a headache to hang onto a pawn only to reach some drawish bishop ending.|
|Jul-21-11|| ||wfarmia: 42.rxc2 what is the problem|
|Jul-21-11|| ||perfidious: <hedgeh0g> As a practical matter, I agree-since 1975, I've had exactly one main-line Spanish with either colour, and in a second case, was facing a much weaker player who was a Marshall specialist.|
Time to trot out 8.a4!
The only trouble with this line for Black is that it may be an unsuitable try for a win when facing a weaker player, given that there's more than one way to take the life out of things, as even that great expert in the variation John Nunn has acknowledged.
|Jul-21-11|| ||aktajha: <wfarmia> 42. Rxc2 Qe4 forks rook and bishop and defends the checking square e3.|
|Jul-21-11|| ||andretheking: Why can't white simply play 31 Bc3 ? Won't that hold the position?|
|Jul-21-11|| ||Marmot PFL: < andretheking:> 31 Bc3 b4 32 Bxb4 Qxd4+ then 33...Qxb2 forking R and B|
|Jul-22-11|| ||positionalgenius: Some nice play by Leko, reminds me of his best years 2002-2006...|
|Jul-27-11|| ||miguel8755: hola amigos hello bayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy|
|Aug-13-11|| ||splatty: Awesome game!|
|Sep-12-11|| ||miguel8755: mi nombre es miguel salgado pronto me convertire en gm bueno esa es la intencion.|
|Nov-09-11|| ||msoewulff: seems like the passed pawns give the queen a win over the greater material.|
|Dec-14-11|| ||chessking11: 18...f4? I play the Marshall myself, so I'm used to seeing these ideas, but I still think, "How can this possibly work?" I don't know if this will hold up...|
|May-18-12|| ||Nilsson: The fantastic move to find is 19...c5!
I actually have the same position after
17.Nd2, and is studying this position.
Ivanchuk played 20.Re4, and that is not the best move. White is 1 piece up, but like most of the variations in Marshall attack, black has an advantage in " what´s in english?" Developement?
I think black is ok here for at least a draw.
|May-19-12|| ||CapablancaFan: This is an example of how to PROPERLY conduct the Marshall Attack.|
