yeah, axb, if Qa5 then Kb1, if h5 then Rde1
oddly enough that is the only line I analysed, because black would be foolish not to play it before Qa5 or getting his counter attack rolling
I don't think black is even remotely close to winning. A balanced fight is about to unfold.
OK, I play Qa5.
looks like h5 is gonna be my move here
ah Samsch, h5 would have allowed you to safely play Qa5
now his pawn can rip open your side of the board
I still think Qa5 was best. good move
Kb1 is obvious now
here is the position with my sugestion
Kb1 works, but you need to be careful
cant tell what current positions are...
for some reason the Kb1 suggestions didnt appear in the forum when I played h5 -_-
here is the position, with a short analysis
in your line why not 7.gxh7+?
Opens up the h8-a1 diagonal for the dragon Bishop via Nxh7
