  PawnSac: < 23.Bd3 > The drawback with this is that it hems in the Q, which would have led me to consider other candidates like Nb3 or Nf1 first, but after settling in on Bd3 to get the B back into the play, one must be ready to exchange it ASAP as a line clearance maneuver. i.e., 23.Bd3 e5 24.Bxf5! and the Q has a flight square. Thus if ..e5xd4 then Qd3 Nf4 Qc2 and it could continue ..Ref7 cxd4 Rxf5 etc.

I think 24.dxe5 was a lemon.
