Move 10

I have to go help Harry for two weeks.  I can peek in during the week August 12-18, but I'm completely out of the floo next week.  I'm looking for a volunteer to run the voting during this time.  I can give you the TheMob account info, the voting site link, and the list of mobster e-mails.  To be qualified you should be someone who lurks around the site most days.
 
To volunteer, simply post to this topic and I will send you the info with my thanx.  If you are not yet a mobster, follow the directions in the About topic and I will get everything to you.

Thanks for noticing and posting chessandgo's move, John.  I'd like to shoot for five days of discussion and 36 hours of voting, unless anyone requests an extension.  It works well with my schedule to open the voting 01:00 GMT Thursday August 9, and close voting 13:00 GMT Friday August 10.  I will be voting, but I will limit my participation in the discussion to suggesting possible moves.  To get things rolling:
 
10b eb4e ec4e ed4w Md3n
10b eb4e Db3n ec4e Db4e
10b eb4e Ha4n ec4e Hb4e
10b rb7w cc7w mb6w mc6n

I'll assume you mean:
 
10b eb4e ec4e ed4w Md3n  
10b eb4e Db3n ec4e Db4e  
10b eb4e Ha4e ec4e Hb4e  
10b rb7w cc7w md6w mc6n
 
On the proposal 10b rb7w cc7w md6w mc6n - why would we want to back off the camel after just putting it forward? If you need a piece behind c6, what about using the d8 dog?  10b rb7w cc7w dd8s dd7w

I like pulling the dog to c4 best.  Our maybe it just won't let go of my leg.

Pulling the dog or the horse to c4 looks fine but I have already my favorite:

I'm worried that this move gives chessandgo a positional advantage. How do you respond to 11w Eb5e Ec5e Ed5n Md3e?  
 
Right now my favorite move is the dog pull to c4 although further analysis could or other move proposals could certainly change my ming

Fritzlein, I hope you aren't staying out of the discussion because you happen to be running the vote this time. Cause I'd certainly like to here your opinions too if you have the time and I really don't expect that you'll be corrupting a 3rd parties voting website by doing so. Wink

Hrm, yes, I was staying out of the discussion because I am running the vote.  The coordinator has a certain amount of influence already by setting the schedule, deciding whether to delay the vote, describing the moves to be voted on, and deciding whether to extend the vote or to re-vote if some move was mistyped or accidentally omitted.  That doesn't amount to getting my own way, but it could at least create the appearance of dominating the vote.
 
Also I'm low on reserve and in a ticklish position in my postal game against chessandgo.  Maybe in a few weeks when Ron is back that position will have clarified, and I will cut loose in this discussion again.  In the mean time, I expect the Mob can make a fine choice without my influence.  We've done great so far; indeed I think we have been hanging on to a small advantage for the last several moves.

I don´t think so (abou positional advantage): 11b eb4n Db3n eb5e Db4n  must be good enough.

What if chessandgo then plays 12w Ha4n Db5s Ha5e Hb5n ? I would certainly prefer chessandgo's position at this point.

I am sorry, I was kind of sleepy yesterday so the right one 11b is:
11b me6 dd8s dd7w cb7s
 
but it starting to look not so very good for us, so maybe I will vote for some pull to c4. Thus thanks for pointing out to that strong 11w.
