  fredthebear: After some jockeying by the knights, Black turns up a pawn from the overworked d3-pawn. White would like to aim a rook on the e-file through the Black queen at her uncastled king. Both colors are quite eager to develop their queen's bishops. Black actually threatens mate on the long diagonal after 16.Bd2 Bb7 but 17.Rf2 is the easy answer. White's queen just cannot form a battery of her own, and chooses to exchange rather than loose time retreating from her blockade. Draw agreed, as White can recoup the pawn difference.

Instead of 16.Bd2, FTB considered alternate developments on move 15 but found no improvements.
