My move is Bxc3
Kg1 looks interesting
So, I'd just like to say, for the lower rated players out there, 10.Bxf4 Nxd5 11.ed Qxd5 12.Bxc7?? is not an option because of 12...Qc4+.
10.Kg1 actually does look pretty interseting, with the idea of g3...any other thoughts?
nope, I liked it because of g3 and the start of added preasure on the kingside
Wait a minute, was there a reason Black couldn't have played ...c6 last turn?
No, also Bxf4 looks safe
I dont think c6 was a good move. It would make taking the e pawn unpleasant due to the pin to the queen, and anyways what would it accomplish? Getting your bishop out of the way and allowing my bishop to move(no more guarding the b pawn). Yes, that would happen but my bishop wont be guarding that pawn for very long (since you are either going to lose the bishop or move it) but it would also take the c6 spot away from my knight and make my further dvelopment of my pieces more limited (option wise). Also it would cimmit my pawns to the light squares for a while, the same color as my remaining bishop.
All in all, not a good move.
BTW I am amazed that I am able to give so much reasoning as to why c6 is a bad move, I never see this stuff in a game, nor did I see all of it when disregarding C's in this game
Sorry for another delay guys : 10.Kg1
No problem about the delay, if you are busy you're busy, I can understand that.
Kg1 is a move I didn't even consider for white, and I don't think its a good move as well (I'd bet that chess.com's analysis would call it an inaccurate move) ; it will take a while for the rook to get back into play. I thought the king would (first) go to f2 at some point and then maybe to g1.
As far as my next move is concerned Nxd5 looks natural and I don't see anything better? I think I could also premove Qxd5 if I take the bishop, to speed up the game a bit, since I don't really see another good reply to exd5.
I think I'm just gonna go ahead and play Nxd5, and premove Qxd5 as a reply to exd5
ex Qx Bxf4 looks good, then open up and free your rook
Sorry kibitzers, but the game is adjourned. Expect move 11 in about a month.
ok this could take a while,
Anybody want to continue instead of mainline?
