Opening Disaster of the day


Beginners are well advised to castle as quickly as possible, and it’s surprising how many grandmasters run into trouble through getting their king trapped in the centre. This is one of such examples. In order to obtain a strategical goal, Black delayed to castle. Despite the closing character of the position, White with a few accurate active moves, found the way to impose unsolvable problems in the early stage of the game.

    Even as an “advanced intermediate” (or something like that lol),
    I still run intro trouble when I try attacking in risky ways before castling.

    I generally do better in the openings and variations that get me castling
    fast, and then attack afterwards.
