  Shams: <hintza> I'm going to need a bit more than that, o cryptic one

  hintza: Lol, sorry, I share your opinion. 23.Rxg8: Free rook!

  Shams: <hintza> thanks. :) now that I have you on the page, tell me if you think 10.Bc8, finessing the N to a6, is a good move. I just played it in a corr. game on gameknot (which is how I found this game.) I've already played the move, so it's not cheating to ask.

<now that I have you on the page> Oh dear, that sounds scary. Will I ever be allowed to leave the page? :-)

10.Bc8 is a move that really stands out in this game for me. I would have played 10.Bc4 without thinking twice, but White is just a pawn down then. To be honest I don't like White's position at all here. But 10.Bc8 is actually the strongest I would say, allowing the tricks with Bf5 and 0-0. But this kind of position is not for me!

  Shams: thanks. I'll let you know how it turns out...unless I don't, which means I got stomped. dismissed! :)
