12. ..Bh5 - 12. ..♗xf3 has also been played, as in O Nikolenko vs O Yuzhakov, 2009

13. g4? this together with the next move simple loses a pawn, because of the threat ♘xc2. 13. ♕e2 was played in Fressinet vs Meng-Kong Wong, 2004 and A Brkic vs M Niemi, 2008 . The idea is to be able to play ♖ad1 to pin the knight, and after g4 to get pressure on the diagonal
