  tpstar: After 10. Ne5 Bd6 11. d4 I prefer 11 ... ed 12. Nxd3 keeping lines open (11 ... Qc7 12. Bf4), plus the Nd3 isn't well posted and invites ... Rd8 & discovery ideas (c6-c5-c4). For the lost Pawn, Black has open lines (including the half open b file, thus I like ... Rfd8 & ... Rab8) and more space.
