Blitz Chess #393: Scotch Game

The queens had little to say in this game, and left by move 7. Would white be able to exploit black’s uncastled king? Ideally when one works with a healthy pawn majority on one wing versus an opponent’s unhealthy pawn majority on the other wing, simplification is welcomed since the king and pawn specific endgame would be favorable. However, would the game even reach such simplicity? This was a 5|0 time control game, where I was playing with the white pieces.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
