I'm not sure who is ahead now. After the horses are exchanged, silver can go after the g3 cat?  

 
33b He5n ee4n rb6s hb5w
 
This looks to me like we capture his horse for a horse hostage. But I'm probably missing something.
 
[Edit: and I'm not seeing any other better responses for chessandgo either so I'm in support of 31b hb5s Db3w hb4s rf8s as well.]

I was also thinking that this was what RonWeasley meant with If the gold E goes after the h on b6, it evades while we trap the H. But this is only posible when Gold plays 33w Ed4w Ec4w Eb4e hb3n rc3x, not when he plays 33w Ed4w Ec4w Eb4n hb3n rc3x as jdb suggested.
 
As Gold I think I would be happy with this line.  
 
Any other suggestions after  31b hb5s Db3w hb4s rf8s  32w Hd5e He5s De3s De2w  ?
I just don't feel like giving up our rabbit at c3 now.

Yes.  This is what I meant because I didn't see the Eb4n step, which is better.  I like Fritz's continuation and I thought the second variation looked stronger for gold until I saw 33b ee3n Hf4n ee4e rb7s, which trades HC for hr and gives silver an empty east side.
 
I notice Fritzlein's post is a bit terse.  I hope that's not because of my "loudest" comment.  That was supposed to be an entertaining observation rather than a suggested change in behavior.  Sorry if I said it the wrong way.  If anything, I would prefer Fritzlein would stay the same and the rest of TheMob get noisier, as I am trying to do.
 
I think I see 8 of us in favor of our move.  If there are no objections, I will move Sunday.  That allows time for objections.

No, no, it's just that I'm sneaking Arimaa between family functions.  I don't even know whether I like the consensus move or not, so I didn't say anything.  No time! Smiley

Well, no objections.  That means everybody agrees, right?  I'm making the move.
