Qe3 b6 {Whereas an exchange of Bishops often marks the transition from opening to middlegame, the exchange of Queens often makes the game being to look like an ending. However, there are positions which even though Queenless can hardly be classed as endgmaes.} 16. Qe5 $1 Qb7 (16... Qxe5 17. dxe5 Nd7 18.
