Fighting the Ruy Lopez Defense
The Marshall is a perfect counter-attacking weapon, as it avoids passive positions and the so-called "Spanish torture". Furthermore, Black's tactical and positional goals are usually clear-cut and often involve a direct attack against White's King. The effectiveness of the Marshall is clear if you consider that the last two world champions have both suffered crushing defeats on the white side (Kramnik vs Leko, Brissago 2004; Anand vs Aronian, Morelia 2008) whilst Garry Kasparov always avoided it with White.
