Knights/Bishops - Why do good players (and engines) not open ''agressively''?


Also about your Ng5 move...

I think the knight likely goes to Nd2 in 3 moves anyway with better play by black.

It's unprotected on g5

If 15...Qe7 16.Ne4 Bf5 17.Nd2

You also have 16.f4 to calculate, but 1 move is usually better than 3
