  Chessical: In the above link, FM Antonio Torrecillas Martínez castigates 15...gxh5?! as leading to defeat.

Instead he recommends: <15...Bxh8!> 16.hxg6 Qxg6 17.Rh6 (17.Qf4 Bg7) 17...Qf5 and "the undefended Bg5 provides a tempo for the defence".

<15...Bxh8!> does seem a real improvement, but after his <18.g4!> Qxg4 19.Rxh7 Bb7 20.Rxe6+! dxe6 21.Rxh8+ Kd7 22.Rh7+ Kc8 23.f4, White is still significantly better placed.
