automatic 20.Bg2 but why 20.Nec3?

Jun-02-20  schizoidman: <wordfunph> White has pawns hanging on c4, f3 and g4. He cannot save them all. He chose to save his c-pawn (bishop guards it). But 20.Nd4 looks better at first glance since it guards the c and f pawns and attacks black's e-pawn. Now if black takes the g-pawn, 21.Kg3 d5 22.Nd6 with a complicated position.
