My game from the 4th round of the club tournament

Last week I played 4th round of my club tournament. The opponent was known to me, we played very nice game in the previous tournament together. I won that game, so I expected his effort for revenge now. So I was prepared for battle again.

The opponent surprised me a bit by his first move 1.d4 (last time he played 1.e4), but 1.d4 is still nothing unusual, so the battle started in quite normal way.

We reached this position after 17 moves:

Here I started to think about my plan and next moves for about 25 minutes. Most of that time I was thinking about 18…. Qe3. Question for you! What do you think about this move? Would you play it or not? If not, what other move would you prefer?

In the next run of the game I was able to gain a pawn and we reached this position. Here I blundered (I still have that feeling) and played 29…. Bxb2. The game finished as a quick draw after that.
