No, then Naisortep Nargit would have played 1 d4.

Sep-29-14  MarkFinan: Kingscrusher.. What do you think of this position *if* after 25..Ra8 26.Qc6 ..Qxc6 (not exactly forced but still looks the best move) 27.bxQ ...Rc8 28.e5 ...Bd8 (again not exactly forced but looks best)

Now I like Rd7 here.

Black has a problem with his 2 major pieces tied down yet white has the knight spare! I won't tell you what the engine thinks after a 20 min gander, but would you feel comfortable picking up from here with white against a player of your equal strength? I think I would (not your strength, lol.. Mine) ✌
