May-08-03  Bears092: Ba6 is a very computer-like move. I wouldn't have found it for a while. It'd make a nice puzzle-o-the-day
Sep-29-08  IT4L1CO: Good move!...
Sep-15-20  TheBish: I nominate this game for POTD. It's been over 17 years since it was first recommended, so I think it's time! 14. Ba6! is a nice shot. Note that 13...h6 would have lost to 14. Bxf6 Bxf6 15. Qe4 (forking attack on Nc6 with mate threat on h7) or 14...gxf6 15. Qxh6 f5 16. Bxf5! exf5 17. Qxc6 Qxd4 18. Rad1.
