Instituting the thematic dark-square strategy of the opening, with play against the static doubled pawns.
This castling by hand motif has been seen before in the theory of the line. I think Basman invented it. The idea is to defend b7 so that the Bishop can move. Since White lacks pawn breaks on the queenside, the Black king will be perfectly safe over there. Meanwhile, Black's advance of the g-pawn has gained him space and play on the kingside. White is already short of ideas.
Locking out the Queen, but there seems no way to exploit that.
Prophylaxis. 17... Rag8 18. a4! (18. Qc1 Rg6 19. h5?! Rg7 20. Bxh6?! Rgh7 21. Bg5 Nxh5 22. Nxh5 Rxh5 23. Bxe7 f5 looks like a nice attack.) 18... Rg6 19. Rb5! Qa6 20. Rb3 Rhg8 21. a5 gives White counterchances.
White does a good job of stopping Black's play on the other side. The game now enters a period of maneuvering.
Now Black's attack is in full swing.
One move too late. Now White comes up with a brave idea that almost rescues the game:
Now the Queen gets all of White's little guys.
