[B]23 exf6 Rxf6 24 Bf4[/B]
If 24 ... e5 25 dxe5 Rf8 (not ... Rf5 26 Ne3 or ... Rf7 26 e6) 26 e6 (not Ne3 g5) Ra8 27 Ne3 g5 28 Bc7 Ra7 29 Bb6 Ra8 30 Nxc4 and it seems like there oughta be a checkmate in here somewhere, but maybe Black can survive for a while with careful defense.
If 24 ... Ra8 25 Ne3 g5 26 Bc7 and so forth ...

[B]23 exf6 Bxf6[/B] 24 Bxh6 Rf7 (if 24 ... Nxd4 25 cxd4 Bxd4+ 26 Be3 and Black is down a knight for a pawn) 25 Bf4 Ra8 and Black is down a pawn. If 25 ... e5 26 dxe5 Bxe5 27 Ne3 Bxf4 28 Rxf4
