Should I play the Marshall Counterattack?
I recently started a new server game and the opportunity presented itself to play the Marshall, but a couple of bad memories made me decide otherwise. In one game (included in the notes) my opponent offered a draw in a position in which he stood better and in this game I lost rather badly. I was also dissuaded from playing the Marshall because I remembered my opponent’s remark when I played …d5 in this game: he said, ”I’m always happy to play against the Marshall.” I chickened out in my new game.
