Rg8 was played to stop the knight fork, and now the knight on g5 for white has no job. It was an OTB game played with long time controls.
eddysallin I was black in the game. I am assuming you mean those moves for my opponent to do.
Ok, but Nxf7 is not really a threat at this point, as f7 is protected by your king. So I think a simple developing move such as 5...Bg7 is fine. If white goes 6.Nxf7, you play Kxf7 and say thank you
Obviously Nxf7 is not a threat at this point. But it could be if white plays Bc4.
Yep, but after 5...Bg7 6.Bc4 you can castle which protects f7 with your rook as well.
