No clue. Too difficult.
After the fairly obvious 1. Ng5 Bxg5 2. fxg5the passive 2. ... Nf7surely leads to an advantage for White after 3. Nxc6 Ra8 4. Bf4.But Black can try 2. .. c5 or the gutsy and promising 2. .. Ng4+ 3. hxg4 Ne5. As Black, I'll play that, and I have a chance to hold the game. Your move.
Black's e6 pawn is weak, backward, and the only thing keeping the file closed for the centrally located Black king. Black's B defends it, so moving White's knight at f3 to d2 seems indicated. If Bb5 or Ba6, the white knight at d4 now has a free shot at e6 and a fork of Q and R.Moving the Black bishop to d5 doesn't seem to help, since it can be exchanged with the white bishop, again leaving e6 defenseless.
Immideately attractive is to irritate that Bc4 with:1. Nd2!planning Ne6.1. ... Bd5 (what else?)2. Bxd5 exd53. Ne6 Qa74. Nxd8 Bxd8is up with quality for pawn.Not much from a material point of view, but white pieces are more active (will grab d+e files with rooks) and black's king position is weak.
Thanks pht!Looks like the correct solution.I was thinking on the same lines but was trying b3 which failed to cover the d5 square.
Not many solutions here really!I can sort of believe in mine as long as it has not been refuted.To me it was pretty obvious to start looking at the fork Nxe6, only being protected by a bishop, how can I chase that bishop?The obvious try was Nd2, to see what happens, and it looks promising to me.
Nxc6 followed by Ne5
How can we have the solution please ?

Dear pht:1. Nd2 and 1. Ng5 are both about equally good. 1. Nxe6and 1. Nxc6 are both blunders. 1. Nd2 avoids the complications that can arise after 1. Ng5 Bxg5 2. fxg5 Ng4+ 3. hxg4 Ne5. You pays your money and you takes your choice.
