9...g6 A weakening move, but it is not easy to see how White will take advantage of it. 9...Bxf5 is much better, although White\'s game remains preferable.

10.Bg5! Threatening to win at once with 11.Nd5.

Of course not 10...Be7; 11.Nxe7 followed by 12.Bxf6 and White wins.

11.e5 with the intention of playing 12.Bxf6, winning the exchange.

On 12...Qxf6 13.Qxa8 wins.

14...Be7; hoping for 15.Bxe7? Qxe7 and White\'s pinned Queen cannot capture the Rook.

White has won the exchange.
