    Instead of 7. ..Re8 black should get their bishop into play, d6 works. White has d4 control problems because his queen isn't on d1, and has to babysit the square or black will have the powerful Nd4. Meanwhile black has no real weaknesses and is free to gain space on the queenside, slowly squeezing white. Not pleasant.

    @blasterdragon - thanks for the analysis and better moves.

    5...d5 was probably too early.

    10... O-O-O?? I'm guessing you gave the question marks not because castling in and of itself was a bad idea, but because it set up the exchange where I lost a minor.

    no problem yes its not bad move just in this case since it loses to that tactic your opponet played

    how to stop it

    easily stopped

    So pritty much all the places I have looked at say that this is not a good move when playing with any bigginers. I want to know if white can make something good out of an agrassive oppenning with the queen such as the Queens raid.
