      I did not fancy the more natural-looking e6, as this would critically weaken d6. Also, the Black KB has few prospects on the f8-a3 diagonal.
      • 7... Nd2b3 8. Qa5d8 Nf5g3 9. Bf8h6
        To prevent a White R from coming to c1 and harrying the backwards c6 pawn.
        • 9... Bf1c4
          White now completes his development naturally and has no obvious weakness. Black's position, on the other hand, is cramped, ill-coordinated, and there is a critical hole at c5. Moreover, White threatens to break up the Black pawns with e6.
          • 10. a5
            This is necessary to stabilize the Q-side, otherwise White plays a5 and the b4-pawn is weak.
            • 10... O-O 11. Nb8d7
              Trying to keep the White QN off of c5; the more natural … e6 would allow the White KN to invade via e4 and then f6 or d6.
              • 11... e6
                ! This is most uncomfortable for Black; White has got much the better position out of the opening.
                • 12. fxe6 Rf1e1
                  Of course, the e6-pawn is doomed, but Black must try to make White yield some ground in exchange for it.
                  • 13. Nd7b6 Bc4f1 14. O-O Nb3c5
                    If instead Rxe6, then … Rf6 holding the position. The N move seizing c5 is much stronger. White can pick up the e6 pawn at his leisure.
                    • 15. Nd5c7 Qd1g4
                      Again, much stronger than taking the e6-pawn immediately.
