Bg5 vs the dutch?
Hi all, 
I was thinking of giving Bg5 a try vs the dutch. Looking on line I see there are a few books out on it. Can anyone recommend a good one for the white side? Thanks.

Interesting Modern Defense move order/trap
I just played a blitz game and ran into what I can only describe as a strategic trap.  Here's the PGN:

Any thoughts on White's best here after 3...Nc6?  I'd never seen the move before; I guess 5.d5! must be the way to go.  Black played a surprising 10...Bxd4! and was already at least equal.
