Bishop D-3, if black plays F-5 then Q-E2 could be vicious

As everyone says, d3 is good. 

Interesting gambit, by the way.

I'm pretty certain, doing it in my head, that Q e2 wins outright. Black only has f5 after which Bg5.

Ng5

Bishop f4

So nobody can see that Qe2 wins by force?

White's still down two pawns and I don't see why Bg5 is such a good move.

Optimissed

well, what does black play?

Optimissed

Either Be7 or Ne7. I don't think anything else will save the Q. The Bishop check loses.

1_a31-0

Well Be7, then what?

Optimissed

If Be7 then Nxe7. Black still can't capture on g5. Then ... Nxe7 forced. This is the critical move now. It looks to me like white can play Ne5 and Qh5+ is threatened. If black takes the B then the Q check wins back the piece and it looks very strong for white. Instead, g6 by black. I'm not so sure now. Think I might have been wrong. g6.

Another approach is Nxd4 and white gets pressure that way too. But going back to the Qe2 line, of course white also has Ng5. ...Bb4+ c3 ... dc bc. All told I like the look of Qe2.

Redshift70

move order is everything, what move do you make in the right order? ...

Redshift70

if at move six Bg5 then Be7 will do just fine Bx E7 then NxE7 ..whites just trading pieces

Redshift70

ohhh even with the Q- at E - without the bishop at D-3 ...comes to nothing

Redshift70

ment Q- E2

Optimissed

No, N x e7.
