    The title says it all, I'm wondering why people consider it bad to take out queen early in the game ? I found it to be very useful for early attacks and winning material..

    It is bad bcause if the opponent knows what he's doing, he could get a huge developmental advantage without losing anything.

    Everyone knows it's less than best... which is why Naka used it for psychological reasons.  For him it's just 1 tempo, which white can afford to give... just retreat the queen back to a reasonable square at some point.  At GM level it means a little bit... at least Naka used it to get a draw against a lower rated player 8 or so years ago.


    For a beginner, 1 tempo is probably worth nearly nothing (although you probably wont retreat it to a reasonable square and leave it there heh).  But anyway, sure, make as many threats as you can as often as possible.  Your beginner opponent will miss one sooner or later and you'll win something.  But against players who can see threats consistently you have to start thinking about strategy.  Against these players you'll see clearly that moving the same piece over and over wastes time.


    Because the queen is the most valuable, any piece can force her to move.

    Bringing out your queen early:

    1) allows your opponent to develop his pieces and build a strong position while defending against your queen attacks [opponent gets positional advantage]

    2) your queen is more likely to get trapped [opponent gets material advantage]

    Here's a pretty compelling reason to watch what you do with your Queen. This player got burned bad 7 moves into the game. Not only does black lose his Queen, but white has three fully developed pieces, and is already attacking the black king.

    Bringing your Queen out early wastes time and violates general principles when your Queen is running away and dodging capture in the opening your opponent will be developing very rapidly putting  his or her forces on the best optimal squares when the smoke clears they'll have a full mobilized army and you'll have nothing on the board they'll tear you apart.

    Your Queen can be trapped, pinned, skewered subject to other tactics all it takes is for you to make one mistake and boom.


    There's no forgiveness for unnecessarily violating principles like Black did here!

    Early development of the queen is wrong all the time, every time.

    Except for the exceptions.

    In Blitz, it might be not that bad because the opponent has to think more and therefore spend some time. But after making 1-2 correct moves, your opponent will get many tempos on the queen.
