Chasing the Queen

Sep 9, 2010, 4:53 PM |

I noticed today that two knights seem to be great at chasing a queen around a mostly empty-in-the-middle board such as when the other player tries to move it out as his first piece. This happened to me today and it soon lead to exchanging queens, me being one pawn up, and me having my pieces better developed than my opponent. Maybe this is why they say that you shouldn't move your queen out in front too soon.

I didn't really mind exchanging queens as I was just happy to end the queen-chasing sillyness.

I'd post the relevant part of the game below but the game is still ongoing.
