Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-05-06  patzer2: Instead of 24. Bf3?, Chess Informant indicates White should have played 24. Rxc5! as the solution to number 1177 in their 1980 "Encyclopedia of Chess Openings," where they classify the combination as a decoy (spelled "dicoying" in this multi-language reference).

After 24. Rxc5! Qxc5 25. Bxf7+ Kh8 26. Qxc5 Rxd1+ 27. Kf2 Rxf7 28. Qh5 Rd2+ 29. Ke1 g6 30. Qe5+ White completes a double attack and in between move check to win decisive material.

Of course Fritz 8 spoils the fun a bit by recommending 24. Rxc5! Qb8 to give Black some survival chances by declining White's poisoned Rook.
