that was one I looked at, go for it
Sorry for moving late, I was a bit busy.
I play 12.Re4
blindfold forum game
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
I'm not too fond of Na5, since it's not a great square for the knight. f5 looks a little loose. I'd like to defend the pawn with 13...b5
14.a4 is an idea. If black plays 14...a6 than we can play 15.axb5 axb5 16.Rxa8 Qxa8 17.cxd3 and black can't recapture with his queen and after 17...cxd3 it shouldn't be so hard to win that pawn.
go for it, looks sound and after running a few variations in my head, That looks right
I play 14.a4
Sorry, I forgot about the game. I play 14...a6
go for the tactic
I play 15.axb5
His plan is clearly to win the d pawn, so perhaps trading it first with dxc2 is logical?
