Why doesn't Steiner play instead
25.Nf6
That would win the queen and maybe precipitate the end...

  Phony Benoni: Because the White queen is under attack from the knight on e6. White wins a piece after 25.Nf6+ Kf7 26.Nxd7 Nxg5 27.Bxg5, but since he's a rook down to start that's not good for him.

Apr-20-17  Nerwal: 21. ♘xd5 is probably stronger but is hard to calculate (although intuitively this feels right) : 21... ♘e4 22. e6!!; 21... ♘c6 22. ♘xb4 ♕xd4+ 23. ♔h1 ♕xe5 24. ♘d5!. All in all White's play was not a bad practical choice.
