Hi SF. was wondering when you were going to pop up and defend
Was going to mention that you are the best person to ask regarding it.
I see you have modestly refrained from posting a few of your good wins.
In your experiance do you find that players are lulled into a false
sense of security thinking it's harmless and easy to play against?
Hehehe, cheers Greenpawn-trying not to blow my own trumpet : )
I think that most average players as black think that there is nothing at all to worry about, and so develop away without thinking whether their development relates in any way to a middlegame strategy/plan!
I don't play this so often now as white, simply because I want to try new things, but I wheel it out on occasion if i think my opponent is a bit 'lazy'.
Here's a recent effort of mine (Burnett-Spencer, Scottish National League 2008 - it appeared in your column last year greenpawn) where black tries a very dangerous sac early on.
