  plang: 4..h5!? is rarely played; after 6 Be3 the players were already outside of theory (6 Bxh5!? has been played but looks risky as Black gets a lot of play for the pawn) There is really a lot of room for creativity in the 3 e5 line. 8..f6!? was quite double-edged. Perhaps 10..fxe should have been considered. 17..cxd? was the losing move; 17..Nc6 or 17..Be4 look like reasonable alternatives. While Black obtained three pieces for the queen his king was too exposed to survive long. 24..Kb8 25 Rxd7! followed by Bxe5+ would have cost Black material no matter which way he recaptured on d7. 28 Qc3+ would have been even stronger.
