I wonder what the value is of putting the queen on the queenside in an effort to pre-empt black's attempt at counterplay with his own queen. Does the theoretical first move advantage then play? If so, to what extent is that advantage ablated by having given up the initiative in this manner? Does it then reduce to execution? If black habitually blocks up their own kingside, is this then the line of best fit by reduction? If so, is this style of play then, uh, predictable? Predictable play is pretty bad. Iunno. Wotevaz.
