Originally posted by @greenpawn34That N-c3 bit, what is wrong with black attacking the N with B? If white goes B-d2, what is wrong with NXB? That is, after B-b4 pinning the knight.The last game v J.D. (give full name) you were White.
Just a few minor points which I noticed right away.

8.Nc3 (which is theory) is better than 8.Nbd2 allowing that later Nxf2 trick that Black missed.
Here. White to play.

a Bishop (doing OK on d2) on g5 where a Knight hitting f7 and h7 should be.
