Nc3 e6 3. e4 {3.d4 Bb4 would transpose to the Nimzoindian Defense. } 3... d5 4. e5 d4 5. exf6 dxc3 6. bxc3 Qxf6 7. d4 {I prefer White in this position since my strong center more than compensates for the doubled c-pawns.} 7... c5 8. Nf3 cxd4 {8...Be7 9.Bg5 Qg6 10.Bd3 Qh5 11.Bxe7 Kxe7 is good for White on account of Black's king being caught in the center.} 9. cxd4 Nc6 10. a3 {In order to prevent Bb4+ which could be good for Black in many variations.} 10... h6 11. Bb2 Bd6 12. Bd3 {White stands better thanks to his active pieces. Notice Black's light squared bishop is locked in by his own pawns.} 12... O-O 13. O-O e5 14. d5 { In freeing his light squared bishop Black has allowed White a passed d- pawn.} 14... Nb8 {14...Nd4 15.Nxd4 exd4 allows White to win material. Now White wants to eat the e-pawn. How can this be achieved?} 15. c5 {A deflection move which takes Black's dark squared bishop off the protection of his e-pawn.} 15... Bxc5 16. Nxe5 Qf4 17. Rc1 {White has a winning position thanks to his passed d-pawn and lead in development.} 17... b6 18. Rc4 Qg5 { 18...Qf6 allows White to win material.} 19. h4 Qd8 { One by one Black's pieces are forced back to their original squares.} 20. Qf3 Qd6 21. Rf4 {Forcing weaknesses on the kingside since White is threatening to take the f-pawn.} 21... f5 22. Nc4 Qd7 23. Re1 Bb7 24. Bxf5 {Black resigned as he has no good defense to White's threat of 25.Be6. If you don't see why try defending Black against Gambit.} 1-0
