by Oliver Reeh
10/2/2020 – In the diagram position White is a pawn down but Black has not castled yet and is far from being fully developed. Black's last move 13...Qb8 targets White's pawn on e5 but did not do anything for Black's development. Don't you let him get away with it!

Strike when the iron is hot

When your opponent is almost fully developed and your own king is still in the middle, trying to snatch central pawns tends to be suicidal - this game is no exception.
