Bb5 { 8.Bd3 h6 9.h4 with an initiative on the kingside.} 8... c5 { This pawn thrust is premature and should have been prepared by Bb7.} 9. dxc5 bxc5 {The future play will revolve around Black's hanging pawns.} 10. O-O Bb7 11. Rc1 Qb6 {Ideally Black would like to have his knight on b6 to help protect his d-pawn but this is not easy to achieve. 12.Bxd7 Qxd7 13.Bxf6 Bxf6 14.Ne4 Taking advantage of Black's d-pawn being pinned. 14...Bxb2 15.Nxc5 Now Black at best ends up with a very weak isolated d-pawn.} 12. Qe2 { White's queen protects his b-pawn while threatening Na4.} 12... a6 13. Ba4 Rd8 14. Rfd1 Qe6 {Black's backward development gives White the advantage.} 15. Bb3 Ne4 {An oversight which costs Black a pawn. However, White stands better in any event because of Black's undeveloped pieces.} 16. Nxe4 Qxe4 { White now exposes the overworked bishop on e7.} 17. Rxc5 Bxc5 { 17...f6 18.Rc7 when White's rook attacks both of Black's bishops.} 18. Bxd8 Nd7 {Black can finally get his pieces out. However, the damage has been done with White being a clear pawn up.} 19. Bc7 Rc8 20. Bg3 d4 {Black gets rid of the d-pawn in order to open the a8-h1 diagonal for his bishop and queen.} 21.
