This is one of my games
[FEN ""] 1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.Bc4 Nb6 5.Bb3 Nc6 6.Bf4 dxe5 7.dxe5 Qxd1+ 8.Kxd1, Bg4+ 9.f3 Bh5 10.g4 Bg6
Black to move, I played
dxe5, dxe5, Qxd1 Kxd1 and now I played
Bg4+ so that he plays
f3 and block his knight, well if he blocks the check with his knight i take it.
flip the board to see from my point of view, i don't know how to flip it by default.
f3 I played
Bh5 so that he plays
g4 stretching his pawns and then
Is this setup good for black? Is there a better setup?
I rarely play this defense and there isn't too much material on balogh variation, so i was trying to avoid some common traps if I fianchetto the black bishop so I tried to block the knight.
I'm not asking to analyze this particular game because my opponent is below 2000 so if you play correctly you could beat him, I'm asking is
Bg4+ playable at the GM or masters level? If not, why not?
