Oct-25-07  Shams: what happens on
i) 10.Bxe4 Nb4 11.Bxh7+


ii) 11. Bxe4 dxe4 12.Qxe4

Nov-14-07  black knight c6: 10. Bxe4 Nb4 11. Bxh7+ Kh8 12. axb4 is simply winning for white, black wouldn't play Nb4

11. Bxe4 dxe4 12. Qxe4 something like h4 and black has chances on a kingside attack

  Phony Benoni: <black knight c6> If the game goes 10.Bxe4 Nb4 11.Bxh7+ Kh8, White does not have 12.axb4 available since he hasn't pushed the pawn to a3 yet. However, I think your conclusion is right, since White seems to win a piece with 12.Qc3 Kxh7 13.c5, attacking both knight and bishop.

If White does play Bxe4 and Qxe4 here, I think Black just has to play it as a gambit. After 10.Bxe4 dxe4 11.Qxe4, he can gain a tempo on the queen with 11...Re8 and go from there. And after 11.Bxe4 dxe4 12.Qxe4 Bxf3! looks good for Black; White must either splinter his kingside or give the pawn back after 13.Qxf3 Qh4, threatening d4 and h2.

Master judgment seems to be that the pawn sacrifice is worth it, as neither line is played often.
