I ran into this position with my dad where I figured I was losing, but then he played Na4? and I was able to fight off his attack after Nxa4 bxa4 Qxc5 Qxc5 Bxc5 and fought hard for a draw after that. With that in mind, what would be the right move/plan here for white?
what to do when you are white: win
Id say prepare the f4 break
Both sides are cramped for space. Black wants to free his a7 bishop and his threatening a5.
If i were White, I would play Bc1-d2 and then play h3, Nh2 followed by f4.
I agree. Bc1-d2 is the best plan followed by Ne1 then f4.
