Ignore the principles at your own peril.

  • #1

    I've been playing 960 CC against this opponent who loves attacking. In fact he loves it so much that as soon as he has a coupla pieces out (often the queen) he's already attacking right, left and centre.

    Established chess principles teach us not to attack before development is complete (different from developing with a threat, which is the ideal). The following miniature is a classic example of what happens when these prinicples are ignored.

    After 12.Nxf4, black hasn't a single piece in play while I (white) has an active threat on the g-pawn (and by extension, the rook), and can seize an semi-open file with a threat. White's king, while centred, is well protected but black's is still stuck forlornly on e8.

    Interesting.

    Maybe he simply got overconfident and thought you were going to drop your queen again.
