    Is there any opening where a line which trade a queen for the two knights and some pawns, (two) might be very good for you, see winning?

    I remember an old Bronstein game where he traded a queen for two bishops and some pawns. Are you interested in that one?

    I think they even named the queen sac variation of the KID the bronstein variation. Ridiculous.
