    1.Rd3.

    What do I win?

    1.Rd3 looks safe for a draw. However, white might want to play for a double result (draw or perhaps win) instead: 1.Bh4 (g5 2.Nxg5).

    I would certainly be very surprised if white didn`t win this a draw seems unlikely to me.

    I don`t know what move I`d play but predict a variety of them would win.

    I see a rook and bishop for queen material imbalance but it sure looks like whites position is a lot more than 1 point better.

    I like the simple 1.Bh4!

    I was looking at 1.Rd3 hg 2.Rf3+ Ke8 3.Bf7+ Kf8 4.Nxg5,
    Which looks good for white, but I didn't really analyze much past that.

    I played Bh4. My opponent's reply was less than perfect.

    1...Nf5??

    Less than perfect indeed.

    White shouldnt be playing for a draw. The position is at least equal

    White has a huge lead in development and should be able to keep the initiative for a while for the pawn. All of black's pieces combined only have 3 squares they can move to and none of them acuallly do anything.
