  TheAlchemist: 20...Rh1! an unusual winning move. The Rook comes from h8 to h1 via f8, e8, e5 and e1 to deliver the final blow

  fredthebear: A combination awaits in the final position. If 25.QxNe2 RxNd4+ removes the King as defender of the Queen. This gives Black a material advantage the point equivalent of a minor piece, with the White King flushed out while a bad bishop and rook pin festers on the 1st rank.

White could play 25.Qxf7+ QxQf7 26.BxQf7+ KxBf7 27.KxNe2 RxNe4 but the resulting exchanges merely simplify, leaving Black up the exchange. The two black rooks will best the pinned White bishop and rook.
