I have played against the Marshall many times and I always win, I don't think it's a sound opening for black.
Thanks for the part one, now I will go and check the part 2.

I don't agree with you that the Marshall is unsound.
It may not offer black any advantage, but the underlying strategical ideas behind the gambit are well founded and has also stood the test of time.
Aronian being a great example of a current super GM doing well with it...

Marshall defense needs someone who knows what he's doing, and to be played against someone who crumbles under pressure, but when one of these conditions is missed, then Marshall is as good as Grob :D

I agree black needs to know what he's doing - that goes for most openings I guess! To compare it to playing the Grob when facing players who do not crumble under pressure is to under estimate the Marshall attack grossly!

Taking a look at Aronians Marshall record should be evidence enough:

He NEVER lost a Marshall game at standard time controls!
Only two losses in rapid play - against Anand and Kramnik. This could happen to anyone in any opening playing black against those guys...
