(edit :we could speed up and don't give them the "weekend advantage" if we move today/tomorrow, they will have to think during the week, and reply before weekend :razz:)[/QUOTE]Please: [B]No Speeding![/B]

One oversight by us would negate months of "weekend advantages".

From your previous analysis:
[QUOTE=LaurV;359862]< snip >

15.e5 dxe5 16. fxe5 Nxe5 17 Nxe5 Bxe5[/QUOTE]Remember Black's possibility of interpolating 17 ... Bxg2 here (18 Kxg2). That's probably good for us! So I don't expect it, but we do have to keep an eye on the a8-h1 diagonal until the white-square bishops are gone.

OTOH Bxg2 could be a prelude to Rd8, whereupon we have a convenient (first, Bxc5 if not already done) Nf2.

- -

An immediate 16 Bxc5 could be followed by 16 ... exf4, not in our interest

- -

We could do 16 Nxe5 to get our N off the a8-h1 diagonal first so that after 16 ... Nxe5 we have the option of 17 Bxb7

But then 17 ... Rxb7 lets Black protect the N/e7 for free so that 18 Bxc5 has less force ... not good for us.

So, for now, unless someone else notices something:

16 fxe5 - 5
