6. e5 Austrian Attack -- Black can easily equalize
It seems that with 8... Nxc3 Black can easily equalize against White's 6. e5 in the Austrian attack. Does White have anything in this line that I am missing?

Pirc Classical 6...Nc6 7.d5 Ne5!? [B08]
I was just checking the March update from IM Sam Collins where he states that white has next to nothing in the opening.

Now I wonder if he talks about 9.Bg5 which I analyzed heavily last year. It looks to me as a nice try for some advantage although I admit things can quickly become extremely complicated.
