Great! We have plenty of time to look around.

Considering that after 26 bxc3 our B/d2 is en prise, whatever alternative we play has to be so forcing that Black can't afford cxd2. Nd6+ is a...

(Referring to 27 Bf4)
I.e., 27 Bf4 Bxd4+

After 27 bxc3 another Black possibility we haven't explored yet is

27 ... Nb4 -- where the knight is, yes, temporarily immune from capture because of the d4-fork (28 cxb4 Bxd4+ and 29 ... Bxa1). ...

Ah, yes ... refreshed by sleep, I see more clearly now. :-)

Actually, the best move here may be one familiar from other lines:
28 Re1 (preventing ... Ne2+)

In the 27 bxc3 analysis, we had a...

We have the luxury of a solid, though unexciting 27 bxc3 choice already in hand, in case we can't come up with some zingeroonie.

I retract my previous suggestion of a fast response. Let's peruse...

28 Re1 threatens both Bxd5 and Nxe6. Black can't guard against both with a single move, so we'll win another pawn and be two connected passed pawns up.

So, I guess 27 ... Nd5 isn't the main...

There's one note in the 26 ... bxc3 27 bxc3 Nxd4 28 Re1 Nb3 29 Rb1 line that needs elaboration: "pins the N/b3 against the R/c8" is not cut-and-dried.

That last line needs further explanation to...
