<<12....exf4 13.e5 d5 14.Nxd5 0-0-0 15.axb5 Qxb5 16.c4 Qe8 17.Qb3 gives white a crushing attack.>

Jul-17-14  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.

12... exf4 13. e5 Qb6 14. exd6+ Kd8 15. Qe2 Nf6 16. Bxb7 Qxb7 17. Rad1 looks strong for White as well.
