Queen's Pawn Game: Symmetrical Variation, Pseudo-Catalan
Position after 16..Rb8. I used 4 minutes on this position but made the wrong decision here. What would you play here? (solution in the game annotation)

Sean and I have co-annotated the game. My annotations starts with either (SC or SayChessclassical). Write in the comments if you got the position correct.
