Franco-Benoni Marshall Counterattacked FTB
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Three straight pawn moves by Black is asking for trouble. If it leads to active piece play and a safe king, then it can be worthwhile, but the center must not crumble.

As usual, there are all kinds of uncles, strange sisters, and second cousins included in here but the blood line is e6 for Black.
