16. b4








   
16...Qc7!
A strong answer.
17. Qb3
If 17. Kh1?!, then 17...e4 18. Be2 b5 19. Be3 bxc4 20. Na4 c3. Or 17. c5?! e4 18. Bc4 Nxc5.
17...b5! 18. Bb2
Worse is 18. cxb5? e4 19. Nxe4 fxe4 20. Bxe4 axb5.
18...bxc4 19. Bxc4
Possible is 19. Qxc4 with a small edge to Black.
19...exf4 20. Rxf4 Ne5 21. Ne2 g5
Black takes the initiative.
22. Bxe5! Bxe5!
After 22... gxf4?! 23. Bxf6 Rxf6 24. Nxf4 White has compensation for the exchange.
