Jan-30-07  FHBradley: I wonder whether 14... e5 might have been a good move, instead of 14 Nd7.

It is interesting, but it does not quite seem to work for Black. For example:

<14... e5> 15. fxe5 Bxg4 16. exf6 (Not 16. Bc4+?? Qe6) 16... Rae8+ 17. Kf2 Ne4+ 18. Nxe4 Rxe4 19. Bc4+ Kh8 20. f7 Bxf3 21. Kxf3 Re7
