  An Englishman: Good Evening: In The Art of Sacrifice in Chess, Spielmann wrote of the position after 11.Be5 and felt that 11...Qg5 comes close to providing Black with a winning position: "White is the proud owner of four Pawns of which two are handsome center pawns, and yet stands to will find after a few tries that White is almost defenseless as soon as the hostile attack gets going." Interesting to see how theory changes over a century.
