  An Englishman: Good Evening: Nice find--if I didn't know who was White, I would have guessed Tal.
Apr-25-07  gauer: These notes also appeared elsewhere: 15... Kxf7 16. e6+;

8... O-O 9. Bxc6 Qxc6 10. dxe5 Nxe4 11. Re1 f5 12. exf6 Nxf6 13. Qxe7 Re8 14. Qxe8+ Nxe8 15. Rxe8+ Kf7 16. Ne5+ 15... Kxf7 16. e6+

Sep-25-07  DWINS: In "Combinations: The Heart of Chess", Irving Chernev says that if 13...0-0, White wins the exchange with 14.Bh6

However, Black saves himself with the clever 14...Bf6! 15.exf6 Qxg3 16.fxg3 gxh6 (Thanks Junior!)

Jan-20-09  jovack: A very complicated tactical game. A lot of moves that would have thrown amateurs off.
May-17-09  zanboryaa: A Dazzling Combinations,this is the type of Games which appeals me, Badly ,to Chess!!.
Jul-13-13  JimNorCal: The combination at move 17, where black forgoes NxR on a1 is striking.

I guess it can't be a POTD since it was only in the notes...

Instead 14.Bb3! and Black is in a bad way: if 14...Qc6, then 15.Bxd5 Qxd5 16.Bh6 and White really does win the exchange; if, say, 14...Nb4, then 15.Bh6 Bf6 16.Bf4! Be7 17.e6 d6 18.exf7+ and White is winning. (Thanks SF.)
