  Jonathan Sarfati: Kotov, in one of his "... Like a Grandmaster" books, used this as an example of innatention to what is normally a wasted move: Bh7+. Normally, what's the point? Patzer sees check, gives check. But in this case, playing this before Bf5 means the K is forced to an unfavorable square after the forced ... Bxf5, Qxf5. With the K on g8, all is fine, the Q just attacks the Nd7 that can be defended. But on h8, it leaves the Ph7 unprotected; and on f8, h7 is unprotected against penetration.
