Queen's Indian Defence Style

Is your chess style consistent? How similar is your style as White compared to Black? My friend David Parsons loved to attack. He played White in Italian Game Evans Gambit 4.b4!? and Petroff Defence Cochrane Gambit 4.Nxf7!?

Parsons played Black main lines such as Nimzo-Indian and Queen's Indian Defence as well as the French Defence. Of course he surprised me on occasion with something different like a Ruy Lopez Schliemann Gambit. In every game he attacked!

Here White wins a piece and then the Exchange leaving him up a rook. But an attacker is never completely out of the game. Dave Parsons kept his attention on my king. He broke open the kingside and made serious threats. I stopped the mate but I gave him a chance for a perpetual check. Alas Black missed the key moment. Then my attack took over.
