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?
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
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?!
Ng5 rook takes Qh5 maybe?
Same as before, this plan fails to Qd5! unfortunately.
Here is the current position btw;
that was one I looked at, go for it
Sorry for moving late, I was a bit busy.
I play 12.Re4
I was hoping for kibitzing, oh well, I'll post my move in a minute.
Maybe I have to start the discussion on the move?
I play 12...d3
13.Nbd2 was my idea but now I am also interested in the endgame after 13.cxd3 Qxd3 14.Qxd3 cxd3 15.Nc3 and I am not sure if I have enough there after I win the d3 pawn.
that looks good, though i think you should Isolate the pawn and win it. that way
Both look good :/ I will go with 13.Nbd2 to keep the pressure.
Na5 looks to keep the pawns that are in the center, cramping white, b5 does the same, as for tactical respoces, f5 looks good
