I think White has to play 12.Qb3 and hope that his spacial avantage gives enough plauy for the pawn ... For Geogiev and Kolev 9.Re1! Nf6 is the move for Black with at least equality.

According to Boersma (1981) 11.Bg5? is answered with the nasty (his words) Qg4!
I haven't found anything about 11.c4 Qg4 and 11.Na3 (played by Velimirovic) Qg4, but haven't time to look at it now.
If the ...Qg4 move really is that strong White should consider 9.Nxe5.

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Hi, what do people think is the best follow-up for White in the following line:

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5+ Bd7 4. Bxd7+ Qxd7 5. O-O Nc6 6. c3 Nf6 7. d4 Nxe4 8. d5 Ne5 9. Re1 Nxf3+ 10. Qxf3 Nf6 ?

is 11. Bg5 any good?

11. c4 seems to be given as the most popular move.  However, what should White play if Black replies to this with 11 ... Qg4  ?
any thoughts most welcome.
