And Reti rolls over in his grave. Your "style", if you insist on calling it that, is more that of someone who makes a bunch of truly weakening and pointless pawn moves. That is not "hyper-modern". Game 4397526
is a perfect example, since you push the same pawns every game regardless of whether or not (usually not) it accomplishes anything, and succeed only in quickly getting mated here even after your opp gives you a free piece.
For instance, what is the point of 6. a6? Are you so worried about a piece getting to b5 (from where it can accomplish squat in that position) that you're willing to waste a tempo and create a weakness for no end? Obviously its not to create space with b5, since you never push it. And why 7... b6? This is yet another self-inflicted weakness that accomplishes nothing in regards to the center or anything else. And even after your opp pushes d5 you still play 9... Bb7. What is this glorified pawn doing on b7 and how is it aiding in the fight for the center when you are imprisoning it on a useless square?
Lastly, what kind of crack have you been smoking to play f5 when your opp has castled Qside, your K is still in the center (and can now only O-O at the expense of immediate suicide), and your opp has a R on f1?
That's not "hyper-modern" chess. That's formation crap where you just play the same stupid junk moves every single game no matter how bad they are (and in this case, outright terminal despite the fact you're a piece up).
Anyway, since you have no concept at all of what hyper-modern is and since clearly nobody's ever explained it to you, I will - though I doubt it'll do any good since I suspect you'll simply sneer at this and continue playing the same senseless garbage opening moves that you are now. But here it goes anyway:
To start, when you play a hyper-modern opening you are temporarily
allowing your opponent to occupy the center. But he doesn't ever get it for free. While your opponent is busy setting up his occupation of it with pawns, you are just as busy preparing to undermine it as soon as possible. To that end, you play moves that actually aim at the center (as opposed to the a3/a6 and h3/h6 you play every single game which, more often than not, aim at doing SFA other than wasting time and giving your opp free weakness to exploit).
To that end, you also have to have a pawn break in mind since its pawns, and not pieces, that are the best shock-troops at breaking up a center composed of other pawns. Once again, a6/a3 and h6/h3 do absolutely nothing toward hitting at the center since they are as far removed from the center as you can get. Putting a B in a fianchetto where it exerts long-range pressure on the center can be a hyper-modern idea, but not when you simply imprison the piece there with no purpose in mind.
And yes, in the KID and such black fianchettos a B which he apparently imprisons with a later e5, but there is a purpose there. And this is the second thing you really need to grasp if you ever aspire to actually taking a hyper-modern approach (rather than playing the crap you play now, whatever you call it), which is that it is your opp who who decides
to close the center, and not you, and that he does so because the altrernative is too costly. Usually the alternative involves a fianchettoed piece suddenly breathing fire down the long diagonal and/or his center being completely ruined. If he
elects to close the center, then you get to play on the wing with a pawn storm and he will do the same on the other side of the board. Whoever breaks through first will usually win. In such a case the "bad" KID B serves some purpose by guarding the weak dark squares around black's K.
Anyway that's a long enough rant for right now.
