I saw the following game in an old issue of Chess Life. Playing it over revived my interest in the Albin, and I have been having a lot of fun with it again in online blitz.
J. Woolverton - D. B. Pritchard [D08]
Funny how this move is back in fashion, thanks mainly to the games of Morozevich.
Not the most logical follow-through, but Black is probably fine against other moves:
Black is well set up for what Andrew Martin once referred to as "the caveman attack": Bh3, h5-h4, followed by opening up the h-file with mate on the way.
Allowing a spectacular combination for Black. Critical was 13. Bxb7! c6! (not 13... Bh3? 14. Qe4! but Black can force a draw with 13... d3!? 14. exd3 Bf3 15. Bxf3 Nxf3+ 16. Kg2 Nh4+ 17. gxh4 Qg4+= etc. -- but this is hardly his intention)
14. bxc6 (worse is 14. Qe4 Qxb7 15. Qxe5
