High five to E5! This opening not only stops your opponents pawn from advancing forward, but it also allows you a clear path to establish your bishop or queen. Of course, you're a very strong player, so you already knew this, right?

In this case, I would play white bishop F1 to B5, putting the opponents king in check. They'll be forced to respond by protecting their king with either one of their knights or bishop ( I'm fairly certain they will NOT use their queen!) since no pawns are available to block the check. Remember, when you put your opponents king in check, you remain in control of the game. I'm seeing any other move too passive, what do the rest of you think??
