That the moves suggested in #49 are either weird, or improbable.
OK sorry, for the main line, after 17. d5 Bd7 18. Nb2, instead of e6, Qc8!? looks best, with Qh2 being met by Bxg4 fxg4 Nxg4 Qe2 Nxe3 Qxe3, and maybe c6.
For the line with Kb1, after 18. dxe6, Maybe fxe6, with Qe8 instead of Qe7 as you suggested.
Out of curiosity I took a look at that Re8 line and after 21...Bh8 White might try 22.Bg2 with the idea 22...Nc6 23.Bf8!?? (probably not best) Rxf8 24.Rxh8+ Kxh8 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Rh1 Nh5 27.gxh5 g5 28.f4!? with compensation, although this is totally unnecessary. White can gain a clear advantage with the simple 22.Nd4, i.e. 22...Bd7? 23.Qh2 idea Nf5 1-0, or 22...Qd7 23.Qh2 Rec8(Houdini, though this move doesn't look good to me I don't see a defense) 24.Nf5(Houdini missed this one, suggesting Ba6, but this is stronger) and White is winning.
I feel like you aren't checking your variations anymore. After your suggested Qc8, Houdini gives Kb1 as +2.24 for White, and it's not hard to see why White is just winning there.
In the other line after your proposed Qe8 , as you can't recap on g6 with the queen due to Nf4, White can continue 20.hxg6 hxg6 21.Nd4 where it's hard to see what the Queen is doing on e8. White can continue with 22.Bh6 with a nice position.
I am not really checking it much, I know.
Oh well, the idea seemed good in theory...
Wait, after 20 hxg6, what about fxg6?
?? That pawn recaptured on e6 a couple of moves ago.
OK, what if Na5 is replaced by b5!?
It could work. Its the same thing, but a different move order, and less commital than Na5
It seems to me that White simply begins an attack.
10...b5 11.g4 Nf6 12.h5 and what does Black play?
Black seems being in serious trouble after 10...b5 11.g4 Nf6 12.h5 Na5 13.Ng3, threatening simply g4-g5 and Qh2, as well as e4-e5 in some variations. Oh, the b5 pawn too, but this is rather irrelevant.
I would pay a lot to avoid being Black here, the position is highly unpleasant.
Mr. Houdini gives Black a small chance after the counter-intuitive 13...b4 14.Nd5 Nxd5 15.ed5 c6, although after 16.Bh6 or 16.Bd3 (ignoring the exchange and going for the throat) I fail to see how Black can survive.
This all seems to be a case of Much Ado about Very Little to me. The main lines of the Saemisch Panno involve an early Nge2 by White. In the database I consulted, the position you give after 9.h4 has a grand total of 12 games, so regardless of the merits of your "novelty", it all seems rather irrelevant. (Also the move-order you give is a little peculiar - 5...0-0 is normal.)
I know, the move order is to delay castling as much as possible.
I think that Na5 is best than rather than b5.
Maybe Houdini can find something else... :P
