I strongly recommend against immediately playing 9...b5 with this move 8 without further analysis by some of our engines. I think that it will probably be our best move but it deserves further analysis.

Let's save a good if-then sequence for a truly forced set of moves.
Valid point. If anyone who already voted wants to change their vote, I'll count the changed vote if you post here before the poll closes.
