Sep-20-17  Dave12: The knight can be a really nasty piece, as Rapport likes to show.

  fredthebear: This is the Barry Bf4 Attack, not a Veresov Bg5 Attack.

16.Nb5!? got my attention. (It's a unique move, but carries no overall impact.) If the Black pawn accepts the advancing knight, the White queen will recapture with check and fork the Black bishop, leaving White a pawn to the good.

The White knight goes on to have a rather busy day.
