Purely practical play. I played this guy before plenty of times, and he is always obsessed with trying to open up my king and crush me. The funny thing about that, however, is that I think my tactical ability is a little stronger than his....therefore rather than trying to protect my king, I give him everything he wants...
I think there is a limit to "compensation" activity alone cannot win a game. If your compensation for material deficit cannot in the long run secure you a material advantage or a positional one or mate itself then it's simply a blunder. As Roman Dzinchichasvili put it here- black has the pawn AND the compensation (so to speak).
lmao, I know tons of people who are obsessed with the same exact things. I think it's the most hilarious thing in the world. It's like their goal is to just call check and look flashy as many times as possible during the game
which is better, kings gambit or polish opening??
