  pawn to QB4: Nothing immediate as far as I can see, but you'd be brave to take a pawn as hot as that. 12.Nb5 and as far as I can see you can choose a)...Bxb5 13.Rb1 Qa3/e5 14.Bxb5+ Nd7 15.Bxd7+ and Rxb7+, or 14...Kd8 15.Qd2 and Rfc1 with a big initiative; or b) ...Rc8 13.Rb1 Qe5 14.f4 Qh5 15.Qxh5, 16.Nxa7, and again White's well ahead, will probably win the b7 pawn soon, for openers.
