Lots of chess players never sacrifice their queen. That is a pity. Because if you never try anything, it can become more difficult to actually do the right thing at the right time, if you would have the chance in a real game.

Why not experiment with queen sacrifices in your blitz games that you play for fun, and gain valuable practical knowledge ?

After you have gained experience with positions in which you have sacrificed your queen, it will probably give you more confidence to try it in a real game.

Apart from that it increases the chance that you will end up playing some exciting and interesting games.

Here an example of a fresh game in which I was very eager to sacrifice my queen.
