Isnt Black just completely fine in that final position?


In the position after 16. Qe4, yes, Black plays 16...Qb6 and is better.

In the variation after 14. Ng5+!?, Black is objectively ok, but it looks more complicated to hold the draw and thus worse than in the "main line".

14...fxg5 15. fxg5, and Black can here play both 15...Qd8 or 15...Be7. The engines give these lines as 0.00 or close to that (many variations end in move repetition). Still, in an OTB game, I think I'd rather play White, because it seems easier to go wrong for Black.

That variation looks quite risky for Black OTB. In corr it might be ok. Still, I don't think too many White players will play this very line at my level.

Yeah, I remember I noticed that too and put me off a little bit. Haven't looked at it since but it does seem quite dangerous for Black

Sorry if I have posted about this before, but I can't remember that I did.

Has anybody tried the line suggested by Avrukh, i.e. 1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. f4 e6 4. Nf3 d5 5 .Bb5 Nge7 6. exd5 exd5 7. Qe2 f6!?

I don't think I have seen any on this here at Chesspub, either at the forum or the commented games-section. There is a transposition that might be good for White, and I can't see it mentioned by Avrukh.

Edit: Forgot to add the line, see the comment to 10. Be3 -
