Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-13  Everett: An absolutely amazing attack, crowned by 23..Nc5!!; shutting down the c-file so Black can crush White in peace.

  GrahamClayton: The knight sacrifice with 15...♘xg5 was totally justified - White's position falls apart after both Black rooks are on the h-file.
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: After 23.Ke2, Black wants to play 23...dxe4, threatening checkmate. However, White would respond with 24.Qc2+ Kd8 25.Qxe4, creating an escape hatch for the White king and threatening Black's loose rook.

Thus, Black is motivated to play 23...Nc5!! This threatens checkmate, so White is forced to accept the Knight offer 24.dxc5, but now Qc2+ is no longer available.
