  samvega: Not much. The material's good, the problem is your delivery.

  samvega: The evaluation of the first variation is interesting: I would have guessed a larger advantage for white.

  kingscrusher: 15. e5 is strong both according to Spielmamnn himself in his book "Art of Sacrifice" and also checking with Houdini 4 at Depth 20:

(Doe, 14.02.2014)

White is threatening as Spielmann indicates (e.g. give black the move h6)

h6 (token move)
e6 Nf6
Nd6+ Ke7
Nf5+ Ke8
Bb5+ winning the queen back after Qxb5 Nd6+ and Nxb5
