Normally the red player is a good player. I played this variation with an old man before and he beats me. Normally the black player would attack but you should start to defend your pieces first and attack after that. And as for red, if they are good, they'll check mate you. Even if they are not as good, they could force a draw and that itself is not easy already. So, black shouldnt just try to exchange pieces one on one. In short, you gotta be good for if youre playing red.
