As a frequent Marshall Gambit player, it was quite intriguing to see this rather dubious system used against me in a bullet game and I came up with an even worse reply although admittedly i had a few seconds to play a move and it was the best i could think of at the time:

Game 1: (http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=1019780389)

Still heaving a sigh of relief I knew that i couldn't reply the same way if I saw that system again so I did some research and preparation.
We were auto paired up 6 days later in the morning and for some reason i deviated from my usual 1. e4 and played d4, most likely I had had some losses and wanted to try something different.

Later that day in the evening we were once again matched up (I had played 8 games between our 2nd and 3rd encounters) this time him with white again.


So I won all three games but shouldn't have won any of them, in the first game all he had to do is see through my innaccurate sacrifice, game 2 was blunder central so I don't blame him for losing but in game 3 if he intended to progress in his chess ability as I want to, he'd have found something different than his usual setup against the marshall and at the least done some self-analysis...
