Congratulation Eelco, you have correctly shown, that 11..d4!? might be a viable alternative.
I enjoyed it very much, when suddenly 11...d4!? emerged, so i decided to pose this puzzle so everyone had a chance to experience that too.
As promised, i post some preliminary lines:
Thanks! I think it was a nice find!

Note that the pgn-viewer incorrectly renders "+=" as "=".
I think $14 is rendered correctly, and $11 for = My GUI does that for me.
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first
place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you
are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
