You might want to take that one back - from g5 you're threatening my queen, not my king. d8 is a black square diagonal from g5, and my queen is there at the moment. Remember, the kings face each other on the same file, the same goes for the queens. It's still not a horrible move, as the knight protects the bishop from attack by the queen, but you open yourself up to having your piece chased around by pawns - the very trap I fell into with 6. ... Bc5?. So let me know if you want to change that move.

Oops I had both kings and queens in the wrong file on my board. I will take back that move unless you are invoking the touch rule ;-)

Thanks for the do over.
