I am obsessed with openings and opening theory. For this reason, I will always be a patzer. However, I may get strong players with my openings sometimes. I like to sacrifice and I play a lot of gambits. When someone plays a gambit against me, I will either play a counter gambit (if one exists) or I will accept the gambit. I don't play wimpy gambit declined lines unless the acceptance of the gambit leads to a lost position (e.g. in the Lisitsyn Gambit I will not take the pawn on d3).
