  1. Aw man, thought this Marshall Gambit video would be on the 1. d4 d5 2. c4 Nf6 Marshall Gambit. Came to this video searching for the Tan Gambit which arises from it.

  2. I came here for the spanish but stayed here for the slav

  3. Great video. I learned a lot here. I would’ve never thought of the Bf8 move

  4. Caleb have you ever blocked with the bishop Be2? In correspondence I had an opponent take on g2 ?!, then Bf3, Qg5, Ne2, followed by Rg1, Ng3, etc. with paralyzing positional compensation.

  5. The first one and a half minutes are mandatory chess madness

  6. I play marshall Gambit #5 it's fun, win or lose.

  7. -What opening do you play?
    -The Marshall gambit
    -Do you have the slightest idea how little this narrows it down

  8. When he says that 12.f4 has only occurred 3 times, what database is he getting that from?
