C12: Another 6 Be3 MacCutcheon try

While looking at the line in the other MacCutcheon thread, I came across discussion of the line below and would welcome opinions:

1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 Bg5 Bb4 5 e5 h6 6 Be3 Ne4 7 Qg4 Kf8 8 a3 Bxc3+ 9 bxc3 c5 10 Bd3 h5!?

I'm not sure I'm sufficiently convinced that I should throw in the towel on the other line we've been discussing and pick up 10 ... h5!? instead, but it's an interesting idea.  There seem to be three alternatives for White: 11 Qf4, 11 Qh3, 11 Qf3.  Kasparov played 11 Qf4 against Korchnoi in a rapid tournament in 2000, and drew.  11 Qf3 seems to be the mainline (or at least the most topical)

Goloschapov, who beat Volkov in a game in the other thread, seems to offer a pretty nasty blow to this line in the game below, but it seems an earlier game went 14 ... Nd5 (instead of Na4?) and Black managed to win.
