Dec-05-18  Howard: Yes, Inside Chess commented that 17.h3 "had a point"...

...which Black overlooked!

If not for 17.h3 Rac8, Black would have had the Qh5 option.

Dec-05-18  sudoplatov: Black also had 17....Qh5; this appears a bit better than the text.
Dec-07-18  Howard: Maybe so, but the Informant recommends 17...Bf8!
