g3 goesn't make much sense, Black is comforably equal after his ...Nxd4.
7.de5 Ne3 8.Qh3 is well analysed to an endgame where Black does not have enough for the pawn.
Factly, 0-0 may be more accurate than Qf3, although the "mainline" is the same after ...Bb7.There is a good point, though:
After 10.0-0 Black may replace 10...Bb7 with 10...ed4, but he is worse after 11.Bc6 Rb8 12.d3 Nf4 13.Na3!.
After 10.Qf3 there is the long, practically forced line 10...ed4 11.Bc6 Nb4 12.Bxa8 Nc2+ 13.Kd1 Bg4 14.Kxc2 Qc5+ 15.Qd1 Bxf3+ 16.Bxf3 d3, given in the old Zagorovski "Romantic Chess Openings" book as better for Black. Factly, I have won with it as Black against a Greek master some thirty-two years ago, but objectively speaking this is just equal, and it's Black the one that has to be careful.
What about ...e4 followed by ...Bd6? That was the line against Fischer.
12.0-0 Bb7 (better is Rb8, still inadequate) 13.Re1 is winning for white (Fischer played 13.d3? which loses to 13...Bxh2+ but that last move wasn't played).
12.h4 is also strong.
So THAT'S how it's done.
Thanks for the lines, everyone!
Wow. I've just discovered this, sorry to say my white game was in not small part good luck, I'll try to check the comments from now on
