e5 forces black's knight to move and gives white better control
over the center. This makes Black violate opening rule number 4.
7. Bd5 prevents black from pushing his pawn up to d5 and gains
a tempo. Black is forced to play 7.Nc5 followed by d4 8. Ne6.
I did not worry about d6, but concentrated more on bringing
up more force.
a3 prevents black from moving his knight to b4 which would
be attacking my bishop forcing it to move, and having to go
into a queen exchange.
Black may have wanted an open line for his rook on the f-file
or was annoyed by my pawn on e5.
This move puts pressure on the knight.
Defending the knight on e6.
Re1 Brings up more force and with the idea of ef6 attacking
the knight more than it's defended.
I didn't want to trade bishops after Nb7 attacking my Bishop
forcing the exchange.
Avoiding the pin.
Planning to attack the king.
Pinning the King once more and giving my Bishop some air to
If black plays fg4 than Bc2!
I didn't want to exchange a Bishop for a Knight.
Mounting more pressure on the Kingside.
Just what Paul Morphy would have done - use every piece that

(black resigns because if 37. Ng7 38. e6 Kf8 39. Qh8#)
(instead 37.. Rg7 38. g6 Kf8 39. Qh8#)
