Best moves are best moves.

I've never gone over depth 48 for this game, and when I did it it was because I forgot to stop the engine before going to sleep.

I'd still like to take back the comments about white's lousy play, because there's nothing better to try on the KGA. My comments about the choice of the KGA on the first place still remain, it's not an opening you play if you want to exploit someone's else weaknesses!
I don't have any idea what depth to "claim" for my analysis of the opening, but the game is still in my original analysis for 3. .. d6. We did take a side line with 16. ... Ng6 but I had analyzed a multiPV 3 to 72/109 from there and had reverse analyzed the top 2 lines given, which included the current line. Since then I haven't done much analysis in the game. I suppose if you want to play it to the very end then I'll have to do some additional analysis.

I'll play on until I wouldn't prefer the black side. So just reach a position where I'd not mind playing the white side and I'll make a draw offer.

23.a4
What happened here is that I got a Notification when Zen quoted my post, and clicking it teleported me to that post, I replied to it and left the thread. I hadn't seen that he played 23.a4 until now (though I had seen he was going to play 23.a4 since he played 7.Nc3, so that'll give you an idea of how much I've been "outsearched".)

That's why I quote Zenmastur when I make my moves, so he gets notified about them, and not just about some random post on the thread...

My move:

23...h6
