well only a mad man would not play Nf3 here
but there may be other options
after pulling out my set, and set the position up, I think there was a problem in you all's analysis, but I will wait before making my final decision
it deals with what to do about your unsuported pieces and my center
if you do play Nf6 I have a move prepared :) interesting game so far
after much consideration
hm something new
is it for the pawn exchange or is there more to the story?
we shall see
oh i see the fork hm nice
just like I predicted, um the next move is
We have a nice trap here with Qg4? Bxf7+!!
Qh6 is best.
g3 or e5
coices are e5 or Nc3
Can someone post a diagram by any chance? Afraid I haven't got my board with me.
still not sure about my next move, g3 yeilds to Qh3+ though so not exactly my best shot, plus now I don't really get something to chase around though, its either trade or loose more tempo
Yeah Nc3 or e5 look good to me.
g3 Qh3+ Ke1 0-0 Ng5 Qg4 Qxg4 Qxg4 Bxf4 and you win the pawn back
EDIT: Bxd4 and black is back up a pawn
looking for simple, and I wan't tempo, plus I think e5 gives me the best use of my move, gaining space and a nice position
plus I want to keep my queen on the board at the moment, no need to trade if it does not improve my position other than material innequality, plus his knight on g4 would give me a headache
