  samvega: HOLY SNOT. One of those speculative sacs (14..Rxb2) that look like too much for too little. White's inability to take either of the hanging pawns is amusing... Sofia's revenge for Round 4.

  fredthebear: Look twice folks; this is a positional castling mishap. 15.0-0-0 gains a piece (the pinned knight), but does not win as it exposes the White king. White's extra bishop will remain mostly out-of-action. White "won the (material) battle, but lost the war."
