Opens up the h8-a1 diagonal for the dragon Bishop via Nxh7
Rxc3 is rather tematic in the dragon, but as far as i know more usual when it sheds white's pawns. I don't see much compensation for black in this position. 17.gxh7+ looks strong to me, black's king is as least as exposed as white's.
Ok, Qa2 what i'm looking at.
Any other suggestions?
he will more than likely open up the Kingside
Ok, I guess Qa2.
Rc8 looks like the right move per my analysis, but I think you need to take some time on this move because you have a few options here
16...Rc8? 17.gxh7+ looks like blundering a pawn while exposing black's king.
Kh8 or Nxh7, using the pawn against white
in both cases black's king has a rather short life expectancy.
not so sure about that, the question is, what would you play, h6 or fxg6, both of which I looked at, I felt Rc8 was more in the spirit of the Dragon, but both of those are good
h6 looks suicidal. I would play either Rc8 or fxg6.
well oops, but yeah, hpawn moves are out, I would play Rc8, but fxg6 is probably the move that wil be played
Agreed, as i'm playing fxg6.
hey jet or someone could i have a diagram?
here it is
g4 looks interesting. it looks to me like my king is fairly safe while his is pretty exposed
I say g4 because it starts to open up the kingside to get some pieces over there, and push the f6 kinigit out of the way
