    Nosh, I think castling is the better option.  If instead of castling black plays b5, white can repositon its queen with Qc2.  If black then tries to play Qc4!, white can respond with d3, blocking the queen's attack, freeing the bishop and allowing room for the knight on b1 to defend on c2.

    Davidleoli Qf5 instead of castle for the last move.  Pawn goes up to block and Q takes for checkmate.

    the correct move after 4.Ng5 is ...d5. after that:

    5.exd5    ....    b5!

    if 6.Bxb5 then ... black plays Qxd5(attacking the bishop and the pawn at g2)

    if 6.Bb3 or Be2 then ...black plays Nd4

    if 6.Bd3... well that's bad enough.

    it's better for black after ...5. b5!

    white's best move is 6.Bc1(saving the g2 in advance so that Qxd5 causes no threat)

    after which black should play Nxd5 and then white should play Bxb5 but black can save the knight by Bb7(not Bd7 as it causes inconvenience for king side attack and the bishop has more scope in b7 after the knight moves than in d7) it took me a long time to write this explanationLaughing
