  zborris8: The database of games in the OE for this line in the Rat Defense (Old Indian) is actually quite prosperous for Black, with the exception of this game.

<1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.Nf3 e4 4.Ng5 Nf6 5.Nc3 Qe7 6.Qc2 Bf5 7.f3 Nc6 8.d5 Ne5 9.Ngxe4 Nxe4 10.Nxe4>

Here, 10...g6?! is a rush to develop that loses a pawn. Instead, Black should exchange with <10...Bxe4> (CG,SF 6sec) and now White has a choice to recapture with the pawn or queen:

<11.fxe4> to <14.O-O>

<11.Qxe4> to <15.O-O-O>
