Grand Prix Attack with sound pawn structure

I walked away with a few more grading points last night when my opponent offered me a draw on move 18. It wasn't really a drawn position because there were opportunities for both players to capitalise - but on further analysis with my chess playing colleague Steve at lunchtime, it is quite possible that I had some better prospects in the final position reached ... It was just getting exciting at this point - I accepted the draw because I couldn't see a way forward at the time, but if I recapture d4 with cxd4 then I should be able to post either a Rook or even better a Knight to c5!
