10.e5! is the critical answer to 9...Re8.
The variation is very sharp, and IMO rather too risky for Black. The other move (9...Bg4) is almost certainly safer.
Thanks a lot !!! hmm Pushing the center pawns at the right time ....
Your variation gives 14. Qxe4, doesn't black win the queen by moving his with a pin.
Black wins in a hundred ways ;-) ...But sorry did not get the line you are referring to ...
You said that 12. Ncxe4 Bf5 13. Bf3 Bxe4 14. Qxe4+ was better than playing 12. Qxe4, but black could then pin your queen with his rook by moving his queen off of the e file.
For example, 14... Qd7
Actually I am still stuck at 10 e5 ! ( suggested by pfren). I am unable to figure out how white defends after 10 ...Nfd7 ( and attackig the e pawn)
10. e6!? fxe6 dxe6 Rxe6?? Bc4.
Or wait the bishops pinned. Maybe just Qb3 pinning the rook.
My engine gives simply dxe6 thinking that the protected passed pawn is worth the pressure down the e file.
