I am black what's my next move?

I've got to beat this damn computer this time. I've worked out every single move and I think the cards are already dealt for me. This is the winning move. So far I've had him on the run but he's built a strong defence. What would you do?

I was going to say "don't make your race, your identity".

Bring your bishop into play as it is protected by the knight.

You certainly wouldn't be winning with that losing attitude.

Stacked pawns are bad indeed but there might be something here.

I am thinking pawn on g7 to g6 to set up a defence and attack by moving pawn h7 to h5. The hot spot is g4

^^ Maybe he should get it on with his queen -? I never understood that about chess.. why you trying to trap the other side's 'king'? That's gay imo. . -not that there's anything wrong w/ that, it's just that it seems a potentially less motivating asperation/goal to male hetero chess players, than to capture the pootnanny.

Oh, my bad.. my counting skillz are bit off. I like the way you think holmes.. also if you advance your pawns you can maybe use them to attack his sheilding kingside pawns and make his king vunerable.

The hot spot is c4...for white. You might just want to concede.

Ok here goes...
