  Sally Simpson: Actually not many moves or variations ahead. There are too many paths. It's a judgement call. The plan being the active White pieces trying to prove the Black Queen is a liability.

There would have been a scan to make sure 16...e5 does not mess things up. (16...e5 17.Rac1) But that is about it.

White is in suck and see mode knowing his position is easier to play (easy to find good moves) Black will have trouble finding good moves and more chance of making a bad move. (16...Nb6 is one. Black was thinking 17.Rac1 was coming and wanted double cover in c8)

Giving the Queen back for a Rook and Bishop was possibly the best and only way to go. Then we went into a nigh text book example of winning a won position. A good game all round.
