This line was suggested in Kaissiber as giving good compensation for the pawn.}
Qe6 {I spent many hours trying to find a way for white to achieve an advantage.
As this game was played as part of a team match I played for the team and
offered the draw. To play on against a higher rated opponent when I have no
advantage and possibly a disadvantage would be self indulgent.} 11. Bh3 (11.
