11...Bb7 in the Marshall Attack
I was just wondering if there is anything concretely wrong with this move instead of the overwhelmingly more popular 11...c6. I have done some analysis myself and black seems perfectly fine. I then de...

a4 Anti-Marshall
Today's Svidler-Carlsen game sort of transposed into this. Carlsen played d6 against 6. d3, and then Svidler went a4, Carlsen then castled. Re1 itself wasn't played until move 14.
I uncovered ju...

Anti-Marshall question
after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 b5 6.Bb3 Be7 7.Re1 0-0 is used to play 8.a4 which seems to be the best anti-marshall move in the position.
My question is if 8.a4 is equa...

Avoiding early draws in the Marshall
The only thing that puts me off the Marshall is that it seems White can draw easily if he wants. For instance, in this line:

I am interested in learning the Marshall Attack.  I have purchased Lalic's excellent book and am also subscribed to this site.  I've heard good things about Nunn and Harding's book from 1990.
