Addled Adelaide

Position after 4.d4?!

I have analyzed the game Carrelli - Goeller, KCC Summer Tourney 2011, played this past Thursday night at the Kenilworth Chess Club.  It was a wild game and featured the Adelaide Counter Gambit: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 (3.Nc3 can be met by 3...Bb4!? -- my patented Anti-Pierce line) 3...f5! when White tried 4.d4?! leading to an odd looking position (see diagram above).  Both sides played inexactly, we ended up going down a rather confusing path...
