Bishop pair is not so important here (it cannot be directed towards white king well) and the pair of knights d2&f3 protect each other well enough - this makes white position and material advantage more stable} )Nxe5 7. Bxe5 Qe7 8. Bg3 (8. h3 Bh5 9. Bd4 O-O-O 10. c3 c5 11. Be3 Nf6 12. Qa4 {h3 is interesting - dislodging the black bishop from h3-c8 diagonal, i.e. it cannot defend the king later.... but Bd4 maneuvre seems shady, the bishop in the end will protect d2 but it position on e3 seems to be just wierd} )O-O-O 9. c3 Nf6 10.

Qd4 {Bh5 is indeed a loosing mistake, but instead of covering c1-h6 diagonal and preparing the g4 push, it is for some reason better to go Bh4 and force black to part with a piece as the pressure against Nf6 and Bh5 cannot be sustained... aka things 2500+} )g5 $2 (13...
