[B]17 a4 b4
18 cxb4[/B][B] axb4
19 dxc4[/B]

19 ... Bxe5? 20 Nxe5 Nxe5 21 Bf4 Nec6 22 Bxc6+ Nxc6 23 Bxb8 Nxb8
or 22 ... Bxc6 23 Bxe5
or 21 ... f6 22 Re1 Bxg2 23 Bxe5 fxe5 24 Kxg2 and I like our chances here.

19 ... Nxe5 20 Bf4 Bxf3 21 Bxe5 Bxg2 22 Bxb8 Bxf1 23 Kxf1 b3 24 Ra3
and I like our chances here.

19 ... Nf5 20 Bc5

[B]19 d4[/B]
19 ... Nd5 20 Rc1 Na5

[B]17 a4 b4[/B]
[B]18 dxc4 bxc3
19 Nxc3[/B] looks okay for us.

So I vote for 17 a4, too, but not emphatically:

17 a4 - 3
17 d4 - 3
