Here is a game I just played.
Your opponent seems to know the theory quite well... until he gets a bit over-zealous with 16... f5. Instead, 16... f6 should lead to a simple draw by repetition (I'm sure you know the line- but correct me if there's something I'm unaware of). Something I don't particularly like about this line of the Moller Attack, black's ability to get an easy draw...
You are correct about 16...f6 as better. White can continue with 17.g4, but there are quite a few moves black can play that all lead to a repetition. 17.Bd3 is interesting, but it leads to repetition as well.
And yet we continue to play this attack, for but a chance at a game like this... what fools we are, hmm? Of course, it's nice to win this sort of game once in a while.
