Queen's Gambit Declined with Bf4

Daniel King will be considering the QGD squeeze in the Bf4 variation. Nakamura-Carlsen (game 2) of the Magnus Invitational final was a great example of this, but he looks at another game where Black supposedly defended better, but with the same result.

This is a composition, but looks like it could have arisen in an actual game. The conclusion is anything but normal showing that there is beauty lurking in all corners of the chessboard. White to move and draw.
