The long diagonal

Keeping with my theme of miniatures from the 2016 NSW Open, here is a quick game from round 5. The game ends with a nice queen sacrifice on h2, with the bishop on b7 playing a key role. In fact this tactic isn't that uncomment, as I recall seeing a number of games from the 1970's that were almost identical to this one. It is an idea worth remembering, especially if you are going to play the Queens Indian/Nimzo Indian hybrid against d4.
