They also lose the pawn with 21... Bc8 22. Bd2 h5 23. Ne3 Bh6 24. Nxc4 Bxd2 25. Nxd2[/QUOTE]
We can do better here. They can't play the king side, after h5, 23.Bg5, and end game. They can't do much, beside (23-24) exchanging the pawn in c3, 24...Rb6, 25 Ne3, they are totally close, we stay soooo good, and c4 is under siege, and can't be saved. They may try a "desperate" 23 (or 24) Nxe5, dxe5 Bxe5, which actually does not seem too bad for them, they play with 2 pawns against a horse, so (26?) Re1, Bc7, apparently quite good for black, his only problem is that the a/c pawns are too far apart and can't be efficiently guarded. But he may link our horses easy, if we dare to develop Ne3... But well, we don't do Ne3 now! We do Bf6(!) Bb6 Re5, we stay much better now.
