    10.Bd2 should be met with 10...b4 and then a well timed ...c5

    Good game! Interesting how black's queenside attack not only came to nothing, but backfired completely.  Shows how a fianchettoed bishop needs an open diagonal or is next to useless.  

    Also the note about "not being interested in trading pawns,  that's not what this position is about" was one of those obvious comments that needed to be said, it made me reexamine the position again and see how right it was.
