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
ok whats the point of g4 now that the h-file is already opened??? it's not like it does anything and I guess the reason you chose it is because it looks "agressive" or it is normal in other variations, but here Kd2 is best. black's queen has to go back, and Ra1after Qa6 forces Qb6 if he wants to hold on to the pawn, and then Ne6 wins so he has no good way to save his pawn i think
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
hess is right, I dont have much after g4
I agree with Kd2 for the reasons hess stated. g4 actually looks like it hurts white's position by weakening f3. There's really no good reason to play g4.
ok I agree Kd2
yeah the more I look at it, that was the right move,
Any Suggestions for me?
Never mind, the trick won't work
g4 on the last move also would have lost a pawn to Bxg4.
Qa6 is pretty much forced here unless I'm missing something amazing.
no I checked a trap, it does nothing, I thought it would win some material, but I found the correct defence
Oh, yeah. Whooops.
I play Qa6.
I can't move my f7 pawn
