Although I have never played this line over the years I have looked at it on and off, being attracted by some of the traps and the fact that I haven't weakened my queenside which can occasionally be an issue in the Moller.  I have been reviewing the 1 e4 e5 section recently and have again had my interest and enthusiasm in the line tweaked.  However, I have one concern and was hoping to get input from fellow forum users.  The key position arises after 1 e4 e5  2 Nf3 Nc6  3 Bb5 Nf6  4 00 Bc5  5 c3 00  6 d4 Bb6  7 Bg5 h6  8 Bh4 d6  9 Qd3 Bd7  10 Nbd2 a6  11 Bc4  (what about Anand's Bxc6 which doesn't appear to be covered and brought him a good win versus Leko in frankfurt 2000)....exd4  12 cxd4 g5  13 Nxg5 hxg5  14 Bxg5 Kg7  15 e5 dxe5  16 Rae1 as in Knebel - Daus, 2005.  This just looks worse for black.  Does anyone have any alternatives or suggested improvements?
