just my two cents
I play 9.Re1+
10.Ng5 has a nice threat of Nxe6 fxe6 Qh5+ but it can be stopped with 10...Qd5!
here are some thoughts
Letting the bishop hang doesn't look so good, even if black gets it back. f6 doesn't look so good in general either.
wow, missed that completely, but Bg5 is the move I was looking at.
I know a forced line after Bg5 in which I am fine with playing as white so let's see if the game goes that way.
I guess 10...Be7 is pretty much forced. 10...Qd5 looks pretty sketchy after 11. Nc3
There will be some forced moves now after 11.Bxe7 which is pretty much forced as well o.o
The move seems to be Kxe7, but is there a problem with Qxe7?
Ng5 after Kxe7. the problem with Queen takes is it lines up all the pieces on a single file
and it gives white a pawn
Looking at it again it looks pretty bad, so I'm going to play 11...Kxe7
c3 is my first though
Ng5 rook takes Qh5 maybe?
Yes 11...Qxe7 looked pretty bad so I thought Kxe7 was forced.
12.c3 gives away d3 square so 12.c3 d3 and even if I try to undermine the pawn with 13.b3 I think his bishop is a great defender. So, instead of that;
My forced line was 12.Re4! d3 13.Nbd2 and black's c and d pawns are now under some serious pressure?!
Same as before, this plan fails to Qd5! unfortunately.
Here is the current position btw;
