Dec-05-08  whiteshark: <tpstar> Do you have any idea why <17...0-0> is bad (= not mentioned)? E.g. <18.cxb7 Bxb7 19.Bxb7 Rad8> with ♗♙♙ vs ♖ material 'imbalance'. Maybe on the long run white's queenside pawns will decide the day?

b) 18 ... Bxf6 19. cxb7 Bxb7 20. Bxb7 Rae8 21. Bc6 [1.41/15]

c) 18 ... gxf6 19. cxb7 Bxb7 20. Bxb7 Rad8 21. Re1 [1.38/13]

<whiteshark> 17 ... 0-0 seems fine and might transpose to the game continuation. White's Rook sacrifice only works by winning a piece along with the Pawns, but Fritz prefers the cxb7 lines over the cxd7 options. I agree that White's extra Pawns plus the strong Bishop pair would give a clear advantage.
