Jul-20-05  molinov: I think 11.... f5 is a little bit too dangerous against Tal. I don't see what was wrong with 11.... Bxe3 12.Qxe3 Na5.
Aug-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Crafty suggests neither 11...f5 nor 11...Bxe3. Here is what Crafty suggests:

11...Qe7 12. a4 Bxe3 13. Qxe3 Na5 14. Nbd2 Nxb3 15. Nxb3 bxa4 16. Rxa4 Rab8 17. Nfd4 Bg4 18. Rxa6 Qxe5

This gives a slight winning edge to Black (-0.16).

Oct-29-06  waddayaplay: Theory recommends 11..f5 or 11..Bf5
