May-12-12  e4 resigns: b3? This is a weak move. I think this is covered in Lev Psakhis's book, but I'm not sure. (Advance and other anti-french variations by Lev Psakhis) But it's 160 years to late for white.

  fredthebear: After 14.BxNd4 comes 14...Bc5 threatening checkmate on the diagonal, so White must use his 15th move to create a flight square. This allows 15...BxBd4, forking the unprotected Ra1.
