"...usually a little too self-congratulatory for my liking..."
Not at all, people are learing things, and if people don't show
then how are they meant to see.
Here is one with the same theme.
White nicks back his gambit pawn.
The tempo he gained with Black taking it was squandered with 3.e5
Black reversed the roles and offered a pawn, the original gambiteer
became the greedy one.
White nicks a pawn opening up the g-file...
The end give a clue to the solution to the above puzzle.
Here we see it in it's rawest form, Chesskid iced the cake.
