In a previous blog post a fellow chess.com member with the username ieatyourpawns suggested that I should sacrifice more material to suit my aggressive style. I took this advice to heart and won the following game very convincingly. Take a look.
Yes, I will definitely do it more often
Next post a win with you developing the most important piece early, with the drunken king's opening beginning with 1.f3!? and 2. Kf2!!
Honestly, this post is pretty hilarious.
Now you see why I love sacrificing stuff, isn't it fun?
Yes, in fact I was hoping that he would play the weaker Nfd7. d4 is very easily equal
In the opening, the line after ...d5 e5 dxc3 exf6 has all been played before and I've used it in some blitz games with a friend who is an Alekhine devotee. ...Nd7? seems like a mistake and I think e6! is a good thematic way of punishing black's play.
I checked this with a computer and it said that it was sound. It gave me a +2.25 advantage after Bxb6
