[QUOTE=WMHalsdorf;360757]I would like more time to look at 16 Nxe5 without Bxb7 [/QUOTE]Yes. I didn't go down that path.

Suppose Black doesn't capture with 16 ... Nxe5.

There's 16 ... Bxe5 or 16 ... c4 or 16 ... O-O

16 Nxe5 Bxe5 17 fxe5 c4 18 dxc4 bxc4 19 Bg5 (19 ... Nxe5 20 Bf6)
If 17 ... Nxe5 18 d4

So maybe Black doesn't capture with his KB ...

16 Nxe5 O-O 17 Nd7

... or castle ...

16 Nxe5 c4 17 dxc4 bxc4 18 Nxc4
If 17 ... Nxe5 18 fxe5 bxc4 (18 ... Bxe5 19 cxb5) then what?
19 Bd4 Nc6 or 19 Bf4
