After, 1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 d6 3. f4 g6 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Bb5+ Bd7 6. Bc4 Nc6 7. d3 e6 8. O-O Nge7 9. f5 exf5 10. Qe1 Nd4 11.exf5 Bxf5 12.Nxd4 Bxd4+ 13. Kh1 Be5, and now instead of 14.Bg5, what about 14.Bh6?  This looks natural and at least a little better for White.

1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 d6 3. f4 g6 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Bb5+ Bd7 6. Bc4 (an idea by Jones I think, the bishop is often misplaced on d7) Nc6 7. d3 e6 8. O-O Nge7 9. f5 exf5 10. Qe1 Nd4 !? {Not considered by Jones (or at least I think so) How to continue?.} 11.exf5 Bxf5 {And now Houdinì suggests:}  12.Nxd4 Bxd4+ 13. Kh1 Be5 14. Bg5 f6 15. Bf4 Qd7 16. Bxe5 fxe5 (16... dxe5 ?! 17.g4) 17. a3 {,with the idea of b4 if white castles queenside I guess, claiming equality but I'm not that thrilled by white's position. Any improvements or alternative interpretations  of the final position? Thx in advance!}

(11... Nxc2 ?! 12. Qe2 {And my analysis shows black is on thin ice: as he risks being blown away easily. If interested I can post other lines. Now best seems to be:} Nd4 13. Nxd4 Bxd4+ 14. Be3 O-O 15. fxg6 hxg6 16. Bxd4 cxd4 17. Ne4 {and i like white's position better.})
