What happens when the queen refuses to stay back and let her army develop and conquer?  What happens when she is so blood thirsty that she immediately jumps out front and lashes out at her enemies?  Will the knights be inspired and join in or will they be left behind unable to defend her grace?  

 

Well, when black chooses an uncommon response to the Queen's Gambit called the Baltic Defense and white plays Qb3!? the Queen Attack variation this is pretty much the scenario.  White decides to forego development and go pawn hunting in these lines, but with tactics in the position there are chances for both sides.  I personally am really enjoying this deviation from the normal, safe lines I enjoy (think Slav Exchange..hehe).
