  R. P. Musante: What's wrong if white plays 16.Ne7+?
Jul-17-14  Nerwal: <What's wrong if white plays 16.Ne7+?>

White would give up his two most active pieces to win the black queen, and Black would get three minors for his queen. Playing to develop the attack with 16. ♕xb3 is much more effective.
