  beenthere240: If white plays 25. Bh3 instead of the piece sac Bxf5 (which ultimately loses) does black make his own sac with 25...Rxh3?

After <25.Bh3>, Rybka wants to play <25...Kh8> for some reason. Here's a comparison with your sac idea.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: the Advance Variation vs. the Caro-Kann has turned into such a weapon in recent years that wins with Black are rather the surprise. What's not the surprise is the title for this defensive gem should it ever become Game of the Day: "Vintage Defense."

Of course, Brunello might have preferred to pop a bottle of Asti Spumante to celebrate this game.
