Its OK, brilliant surprise move, but maybe now the surprise value is gone.

Kramnik’s 5...c5 in the Marshall Gambit

In the Candidates tournament Kramnik played this line as Black against Caruana:
1.c4 e6 2.Nc3 d5 3.d4 c6 4.e4 dxe4 5.Nxe4 c5. Is this move actually good? It looks very strange to my eyes and seems kind of pointless except that it avoids all the mainline Marshall Gambit theory.
