  tpstar: Here's an interesting Sicilian Dragon where White recaptures 14. cxb3 over 14. axb3 or even 14. Nxb3 which ends any Queenside attack after 15. Kb1.

Black loses Q for R after 26 ... Kh8 27. g7+, and there is no other plausible defense against 27. gh+ Kh8 28. Rg8+! crashing through.

Aug-04-09  Gilmoy: White's <13.h5> offers P+exchange just to prevent Black's h5. It's not really a "sac" because White's attack is much stronger without its own h-pawn in the way. White's thematic <19.Qh6> overwhelms Black's lone N.
