  Fusilli: 17.Bd3 is very pretty and wins, and the way the game went, it wins beautifully. Black had a better defense with 17...Nf5 though:

White still wins with 18.Qxe4 Qxh1 19. Nxa8 Nxg3 20.Qe5! (computer-checked line).

The cold computer prefers either 17.Be2 or 17.Bc4. But we mere mortals are glad that Szmetan played 17.Bd3 and the game continued as it did. We like beauty.
