Aug-01-07  engmaster: 14) Bxc8 is an interesting move White exchange sacrifices to post a Kt on a strong post at f5. Also the black king looks better protected than the exposed white king in the center. However white realises that the Queens will be exchanged off soon and that his Kt on f5 will be much stronger than the bad bishop. The semi open h file proves decisive.
