    1. Ng1 with threat to Black Re2 and also 2. Qf6+ Ke8 3. Ra8+. If 1. …Qc3+ 2. Kh2. I don’t see good defense for Black.

    1. … Re3+ 2. Kh2 Qxb4 3. Qf6+ Ke8 4. Qg6+ Ke7 or Kd8 5. Qg5+ wins rook on e3.

    Definitely an interesting idea but 1.Nd2 was in the game 🙂 A lot stronger!

    🙂 Here’s where my lower level shows: what makes 1. Nd2 a lot stronger? I just want to better understand this.

  5. yelenadembo says:

    It attacks the R on e2 (Qxe2) and threatens Qf6 and Ra8+ – more threats and doesn’t let him make moves like Qxb4, etc. Black is limited to ONLY bad and forced moves 🙂

  6. bumpaguv says:

    1. Nd2 Re3+ 2. Kh2 Qxb4 still loses for Black, of course.

    Yes 🙂
