Quick Quiz

What does White play in this position from Christensen vs. Browne, Las Vegas 1990?

Highlight for answer: White should play 8.Bh4 because capturing the N would only help Black develop. Retreating 8.Bf4 was also acceptable. After 8.Bh4 if Black plays 8…g5 White won’t retreat to g3; he will play 9.e3 and if gxh4?? (9…Ng6 with equality) 10.Qh5+ Ng6 11.Qxg6+ Ke7 12.Nd5#
