The Be3 exchange variation continues to be popular and now 9.Nd2!? is the latest wrinkle. Black’s queen sacrifice has been played more than once but I don’t see the appeal.

Black has made a queen for RN+P sacrifice and now the question is how should white arrange his forces. The next few moves are critical. What do you recommend for white?
