[QUOTE=WMHalsdorf;367384]21.... Ra8 or Rb6 22. Nxa6 Rxa6 23. Bxc6+ Nxc6 24. Bd2 making way for Ne3 then Nxc4[/QUOTE]except 24 ... Na7(or b8 or d8) 25 Ne3 Rc6 26 Ng4 h5 and material's still even.

Scenario (undoubtedly overlooking better moves for Black along the way):
[B]21 Nc5 Ra8(or b6) 22 Nxa6 Rxa6 23 Bxc6+ Nxc6[/B] 24 Nf2 f5 25 exf6 Rxf6 (not 25 ... Bxf6 26 Bxh6) 26 Ne4 (threatening Nd6+ and Nxc4) Rxf1+ 27 Rxf1 Ne7 (not ... Ke7 28 Nd2 wins the c-pawn) 28 Bf4 Nc8 29 Nc5 Rc6 30 Re1 Ke7 31 Nb7 Ra6 32 Bc7 Ra7 33 Nc5 Rxc7 34 Nxe6 Ra6 35 Nxg7+ Kf7 36 Ne6 Re7 37 Nd8+ Ke8 38 Rxe7+ Nxe7 (not ... Kxe7 39 Nc6+) 39 Nb7 Nc6 40 Nd6+ K-moves 41 Nxc4 and we're two pawns up.
