no, i am losing a game from this type of problem,i will post it on as soon as its over.
The major problem for me is i end up being cramped by the advancing pawns, or i have a choice then of being cramped in development or choose to sacrafice material.
I have not played for years and it seems to me that chess has movrd on a lot.
In those days i was taught ...[text shortened]... ve pawns no more than three in the early opening.
I will post a example game as soon as can.
That idea is still sound more often than not. This sort of pawn attack is popular in blitz, too, but it's the chessic equivalent of throwing one heavy punch after another, its pretty clumsy but if it hits its nasty, once you know how to step out of the way, though, the guy's toast.
