I played this system for may years ... see A J Goldsby vs D Baker, 1989 as one example, I played this line (through 17.Re3) from the time I was a kid, until I was probably well past 40! (This is a lost game, and not one of my better efforts. However, it does clearly illustrate the problems with this line and is one of the reasons that I no longer play this particular system.)

Feb-28-14  LIFE Master AJ: This is one of the games that could have arose from Salwe vs Rubinstein, 1903, this game is (possibly) theoretically important and an improvement over that game.

Maybe. But definitely your loss against D. Baker is absolutely misplaced here.

  tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 25. Rxh1.

15. Kg3!? was pretty adventurous. At the end, 38. Rxa6?? is out due to 38 ... Bd3+.
