Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-15  Marmot PFL: 19 Bxd5 cxd5 20 Qxd5 Rd8 21 Bg5 Qxa1 22 Bxd8 and at least white shouldn't lose, even if he probably can't win. White wanted more but by move 25 had hardly any moves left that didn't lose material.
Nov-18-15  Ulhumbrus: If White can't help 20 c4 making his d pawn backward perhaps he had better not allow the move 16...Qe1+. This suggests 16 Kf1 preventing the invasion
Nov-18-15  caracas1970: why white resign?
Nov-18-15  Shams: <caracas1970> White can't meet both threats (Qg1, Qf1/Bd6).
Nov-18-15  Pulo y Gata: Ivanchuk's second loss against the Marshall in just a few months (first one against So).
Nov-18-15  Pulo y Gata: <Marmot PFL> That's a good line you cited. The Marshall has stood the test of time and now usually ends up to a draw in GM level, but is still a very dangerous gambit to face otb. I'd call it a small investment, high reward opening as black puts the pressure on white very early and can get the draw usually, despite being a pawn down.
Jan-25-16  Exploding: If Ivanchuk wants to not lose in the marshell why would he play 1.e4 and 4.Bb5? He can play moves like 5.Bxc6 or 1.d4 (My favroite choice) and even 1.b3? Is he that stupid or he didn't spend any time study on the Marshell???
Jun-15-17  George Roberts: I like the Marshall Gambit as black. I win more often than not and it's just the standard line first used by Boris Spassky many years ago.
