  tpstar: Black can win a Pawn after 5. c4!? Bxb1 6. Rxb1 Qa5+ 7. Bd2 Qxa2, but after 8. c5! the Black Queen gets caught on the Queenside. White can then draw (if desired) by "perpetual" on the Queen = 9. Ra1 Qxb2 10. Rb1 Qa2 11. Ra1 etc. and there may even be some means to win the Queen here. Perhaps 5 ... Bxb1 6. Rxb1 Nd7 intending 7 ... dc 8. Bxc4 Nb6 & 9 ... Nd5 with a fine centralized Knight.
