  Domdaniel: Two interesting options for Black were: (a) 14...Nxe5!? 15.Nxe5 Qxe5 16.Bxd7+ Kxd7 17.Rxb7+ Kc6! when the Ne7 is immune due to the threat of ...Rh8, and (b) 14...0-0-0 15.Bxc6 Bxc6!

These were analyzed in some detail on my forum, starting page 701 -- -- by hm6123, cro777, OhioChessfan, and various other people.

  Domdaniel: <pulsar> Thanks for fixing the link problem. I must have accidentally used a mirror instead of a transporter beam.

Your link leads directly to the analysis. Mine should be ignored.

  Domdaniel: It looks as if White is simply better after 12.Bd3. But I still think Black should play 11...Qxa5 in this line: leaving the a-pawn is not just an extra pawn for White, but a potentially dangerous threat of a6.
