    Guys... please don't play Qc2, Qc2 would most likely be followed up by Nb4, forking queen and bishop, giving up an important bishop for a knight and allowing one of the black rooks more potential scope on the c-file. It's a blunder and would be chess.com's first in this match.

    Rc1 is a far better suggestion, taking control of the open c-file.

    yeah I'll probably use my vote to tip the scales, since as I said before if this happens I will use my vote

    It'd be neat if, at the end of the game, you showed us what Houdini thought were the best responses to its moves and our moves countered against them to see how accurate we were as a unit, and show the Houdini eval (but only at the end).

    I don't think Rc1 should be played without some analysis. The a4 pawn is very weak and it will be undefended if we move the rook away. Notice that the c6 knight can move with a discovery on it at any time.

    We have the defence Nc5 against any discovered threats, such as Nb4, on the a-pawn, protecting the pawn with both knight and queen and gaining some critical tempi, I think it would be strategically suspect for black to go for the a-pawn in this position.

    If Bxc5 we'd have dxc5, kicking the queen, followed by Bxb4 and b3 and we're better with a stable pawn chain on the queenside, black's doubled b-pawns and better placed rooks.

    Qc2 looks good to me.

    Qc2

    aims at g6

    Hey jet, I've seen ya round ;), it's a nice idea but it doesn't actually aim at g6 because we're tied down to the b3 knight, so Qc2 doesn't actually attack very much either as well as allowing Nb4.

    I'm just trying to stop what I think would be a big blunder against Houdini.

    If you want your vote counted it needs to be red.
