The biggest takeaways here seem to be that Bh4 actually isn't a bad move.  I had expected to be scolded for it.  Also, Houdini hates 17. O-O.  The idea seems to be that it allows me to play g5 and then win the bishop.  By the same token, Houdini hates my knight maneuvers because they are totally failing to win the bishop or hold back the pawn storm.  The two knight moves after 17. O-O swing the evaluation from -4 to plus 3.  Houdini also seems to be ok with Nc5 which was the move that I pointed out in last post as possibly the root of my troubles.
