f3 & f6 Kside structures leak if Qs still aboard
Compiled by fredthebear

This site is mostly e4-f3 gambits, Sicilians, some 150 Attacks against the Pirc/Modern, and the King's Indian Defense. Sorry, there are no Breyer or Muzio Gambits here; that's all in with the King's Gambit. The Dutch Defense gambits are going into their own collection as well but have not been removed from here yet.

Pawn to f3 is used to support e4 (sometimes g4 in a pawn storm), but it also creates quite a leak in the king's shield. It weakens as much or more than it strengthens. Pawn to g4 is more often associated with support from h3 instead of f3, but it does depend upon the opening.

Thank you jungol, RayDelColle, sneaky pete.
