  patzer2: Black's game goes down hill after 16. dxe5? allowing 16...Qxd2+ (-1.05 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

Instead, 16. d6 = appears to hold as play might continue 16...fxe5 17. Bb2 exf4 18. Bxg7 Kxg7 19. O-O Rf8 20. Rbd1 Bd7 21. Qb2+ Kg8 22. Qxb7 a5 23. Bg4 = (0.13 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

An instructive in-between move is 20...Bd4+! setting up the winning discovered attack 21. Kh1 Bc8 (-1.93 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

A mistake would be 20...Bc8? allowing 21. Rxg7+ Kxg7 22. bf3 = gaining back the exchange.

  perfidious: <patzer2> While I am in no way au courant with the theory of this subvariation, it is curious to me that White (quite a competent player) played fifteen moves well known to theory, then promptly erred.

Black has scored far better after 13....Bc7 than the move played in text:

Your computer suggestion 16.d6 is much the most common move in this DB.

To me, there is no logic in going in for this if White plays to overrun his opponent in the centre, then gives it up to head straight for a clearly worse ending.
