Link to Marshall Games -8... d4 9 d5


A link for my future references as to ideas for play when white declines the gambit and offers one of his own. 8....d5 9 d4

    So how are you faring with the KG? Is it still your main White opening (if ofcourse Black responds with 1...e5)? Just keep it up no matter what and i'll bet one day you'll be an KG expert. I see you're still in love with those Traxlers. The funny thing is, i am the guy that's playing 4.Ng5 often nowadays :-)
    Only i'm smart enough to play it with knowledge of the Traxler, so i feel confident in playing it. A lot of fools just play 4.Ng5 not knowing anything about no Traxler. Pretty dumb if you ask me. I see you're into Marshall's as well? Pretty cool opening. Too bad you must also expect an anti Marshall when wanting to play it. Took the fun out of wanting to play it for me. But i quit playing 1.e5 altogether, so...

    Dutch, So what do you do play against the traxler bXf7? That takes alot of the fun out of the traxler. I too dislike the anti marshall lines which I need to learn more about. Still playing the KG and enjoying it. however the danish gambit and the halloween gambit seem to be calling me of late. no e4 I thought you were playing the giuoco given your game study

    No, i meant i am playing 1.e4. And i am the guy who's attacking your f7 pawn at move 4. I'm not playing 1...e5 anymore. By the way, i've got me that winning with the KG book by Gallagher. Can't wait to play through it solitare :-)
