In this game, the last move made by white was Bg5 . Now it's black's turn. A software analysis shows that black is winning in this position with -2.51 evaluation. I am unable to spot the black's next best move ? Any kind of hint is appreciated !
This isn't a deep analysis using a computer, just my 'at a glance' thoughts.
Here are my observations:
- The pawn structure is typical for a Caro-Kann structure
- Black is a little cramped
- There is no forced win, so what you pick is a stylistic decision
These are the moves I would consider:
- 1...Qc7 or 1...O-O are thematic in the Caro-Kann pawn structure
- 1...Nd5 offering a trade of dark square bishops would help relieve Black's cramped position
- 1...c5?! is too soon, but Black would like to get this move in sometime to challenge White's space advantage
- 1...Bxf3?!, although exchanges a bad bishop, I think this is too soon, and I would prefer to keep the pressure on the knight
