[-1.24] d=24 15...h5 16.g5 Nh7 17.cxd5 Nxd5 18.Nxd5 Bxa1 19.e4 Qd7 20.Qd3 b5 21.Nc2 Bg7 22.Bf4 Rad8 23.Rd1 Bxd5 24.exd5 Be5 25.Be3 Bd6 26.Re1 Re5 27.Qd2 Qf5

Sep-18-13  jerseybob: According to the score from the Lou Hays compilation(game #71), black's 13th move was Bf5, not Be6 as given here. That makes white's 15.g4 and black's 15..Bg4 more understandable. USCF Master John Hall, the annotator, recommends 15..Be6! with a big plus. In the game sequence given here(in this database) that move would be impossible.
