Playing 14.g3 with your light squared bishop on the other side of the board left many weak spots for him to attack. But 14.h3 doesn't work either after 14...Bxh3. So the mistake was made beforehand, in allowing 12...Bd6 followed by 12...Qh5.
I have tried a pawn grabbing line that looked very similar to this game in an otb match, and ended up getting br ...[text shortened]... ally attacked as well, so maybe 8.Nxd5 requires more accurate play than both of us suspected...
Originally posted by tomtom232Yes, Nc3 really does nothing. But I still think allowing Bd3 and Qh5 led to kingside weaknesses that might cause trouble down the road, although the position does see defendable after Qe2 or Qf3.
g3 was alright after Qh3 15.Nc3 lost it... better would be 15.Qe2 or Qf3
but black should have played 14... Qxd4
