Another nail in the coffin for 9 0-0-0 Nxd4 ?
Below is a game I played as black in the 3rd PAL/CSS Freestyle Tournament. It looks to me like white found a huge improvement on a line that was already considered somewhat critical for black accordin...

B76: 9.0-0-0 Nxd4 10.Bxd4 Be6 11.Kb1! Qc7 12.Nb5!!
