    I dont know this sideline, but what does black have after simple 10.Bb3? If Nxb3 then axb3 followed by usual h4-h5-g4 pawnstorm as opened a file helps white more than it hurts him(a8 rook cannot move because a7 pawn is hanging, Qa5 not possible and white king is not in danger aswell). And if 10...Bd7 or a6 then h4-h5 pawnstorm still viable. Also note that if whites castle long, black captures on b3 then after simple axb3 and Kb1 there is nothing to be affraid. Be2 seems just weird to me.

    After 13...e5, if whites play 14.h6 Bh8, then Nf5 sacrifice should be possible(It might be possible on 14. move aswell). But otherwise very nice game.

    I would not play 11. ... a6, 11...d5 is a much better move IMO. 

     


    if you do play 12. exd5 black can easily get equality.

    Hm, I doubt 13.f4 is immediately good move, whats wrong with 13.Ndb5 or Bh6 first?

    Pulling up the computer  

    Bh6 would lead to something like 13...Bxe5 14.Bxf8 Kxf8 15.h4 Bf6 16.Nde2 e6 17.O-O-O Bd7 where I like whites placement,but it still not awful for black.

    13.Ndb5 leads to something like  13...Bxe5 14.Qxd5 Bxc3+ 15.Nxc3 Nf6 16.Qd4 Be6 17.O-O Qxd4 18.Bxd4 a6 19.Bxf6 exf6 20.Ne4 f5 21.Nd6 b6 22.Rfd1 Rfd8 23.c4 Rd7 24.b4

    I was using 14. f4 as it is the book line in the book I have (which may be out of date)

    Wow, a hard fought game.  Looks like both sides fought hard for the initiative!
