As opening principles say, you shouldn't push too many pawns in the opening. Instead, you should concentrate more on piece development. However, I have good example where it worked the other way around.

Why did Emil win? He didn’t follow opening principles. Instead he did 17 consecutive pawn moves at the beginning.
