  refutor: in his excellent book on the semi-slav, GM Matthew Sadler gives 14.Bb5+ as premature saying "the key thing about Black's position is it's solidity, especially in the central area: it will take something special to break past the knight on d5, supported by the bishop on b7 and the pawn on e6. White also has no pieces in the attack: there is the bishop on b5, and... nothing else! In fact the bishop is simply loose on b5, and Black threatens ... Qb6, hitting the bishop and the f2-pawn. White has only a temproary initiative; Black will soon play ... h7-h6, to stop anything from coming to g5, play his king's rook to d8 and then slip his king back to f8 to absolute safety. Since White has no body of pieces to support his one check, his temporary initiative is doomed to slip away without a trace".
