Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-16-04  InspiredByMorphy: I think white could have won had he not exchanged queens, allowing connected center pawns when it was blacks only hope of survival. White should have played 20.Qc5+ and then if ... Qe7 21.Qxe7 Kxe7 22.O-O-O with 23.Rhe1 attacking the isolated center pawn which the king is pinned behind.
Aug-18-04  Cyphelium: <IBM> It is better to play 20. Qc5+ Qd6 instead of 20.- Qe7.
Feb-18-19  Straclonoor: <I think white could have won> Yes, Stockfish agree with you.
Here the lines, confirmes that's 20.Qc5 and 20.Qa5 gives serious advantage for white.
