Budapest TCh 2012-13 Rd10

(Thanks Pal and NB for correcting the score)
RAC got crushed on a beautiful day(26 C outside) by something like this score. I lost horribly and so did everyone around me.

Szepes,Tamas won a nice queen ending(Q+ 2Ps vs. Q+2Ps).

FM Lyell,Mark won a rook ending(R+2Ps vs R+P) and then rushed off to play his First Saturday tournament game.

Here's my (awful) game.

I needed a few hours to calm down as I didn't think that my play or my position was that bad. However, Mr Houdini3.0 had a different opinion and did an excellent job of hurting my feelings and crushing my fragile ego.

I got a nice position from the opening so I can't blame the Philidor. However, the position required concrete action and sharp play and I was not up to the task. Once I loosened the queenside with ..b4, there was no going back and the game was essentially out of my hands.

Position 1
Black has a solid looking position. What do you recommend for white?
