Gambits Part 4: Marshall Gambit in the semi-slav

When you hear the words "Marshall Gambit" you're probably thinking of a position that arises from the Ruy Lopez, but the truth is that Frank Marshall was responsible for a handful of gambit openings that are still employed at the highest level of chess today with incredible soundness and strength. Here I have started within his gambits with the Marshall gambit against the semi-slav

I have provided some analysis mostly covering a recent game Aronian-Vallejo Pons but also talking a little bit about some ideas. Not the normal ideas I usually like to provide, but this line is very theoretical and I'm not trying to turn this into a theoretical survey. Check here for my analysis.
