... continuing analysis of 16 Nxe5 c4:

17 Nxc6 Nxc6 18 dxc4 bxc4 19 Bc5 (intending 20 Ne3)

But 17 ... Bxc6 is better for Black. If 18 dxc4 then 18 ... bxc4 revives Black's Q-side attack.

So far, I think Black's best reply to 16 Nxe5 is 16 ... c4, oddly enough.

Does 17 d4 after 16 ... c4 look promising? If 17 ...Nxe5 18 fxe5 h6 19 Nf2
or 18 dxe5 threatening 19 Ba7 (19 ... Ra8 20 Bxb7 Rxa7 21 Be4

If 17 d4 f6

hmm...
