I saw Nd4, but I wasn’t sure how the line would continue. So I chose Qg4. I didn’t see Nf6…😄
The line would only continue with …Qc5.


Bb5+ won’t work because …c6, Nxe6, …fxe6, Bxc5, …cxb5?

I didn’t see the Bb4+. I should just trade the knight and win bishop with this line.


This one I struggled with Be4 or Qe4. I thought I’d trade my bishop and my rook with the queen and the knight. But Be4 is better because since black queen doesn’t want to be taken by my queen, it won’t take my bishop.

The opponent is not going to easily trade its queen.
