Uhh, neither... i'm in favor of Nxg4?edit: I thought they'd lose material due to theme of removing the defender, didn't fully calculate it though.
Nd5 is better. Be3 just loses a piece
13.Nd5 loses a piece. How and why 13.Nd5 loses a piece is the question in this puzzle.
Let's make it happen!
I'm not sure how the bishop-move alternatives to 13. Nd5 are good for white either:
13. Be3 Bxe5 seems to hang a piece.
13. Bg3 Nxg3 14. Nxg4 Nxh1 also seems to lose an exchange.
I'd rather 13. Nxg4 Nxg4 14. 0-0 and there doesn't seem to be danger from 14...Nxd3 15. Qxd3.
