  tpstar: White to Play and Win after 18 ... Nxg6.

White's position after 16. Rac1 demonstrates ideal play with the IQP: Knights on the c5 and e5 outpost squares, and Rooks on the open e file and half-open c file. Here White's Bc4 and Qb3 are pointing toward f7, along with the Ne5. Black has a good blockade on d5 but no pressure against the Pd4.

18 ... hxg6 would have avoided the game continuation. If 19 ... Rxd5 20. Na6! bxa6 21. Qxd5! wins the exchange.
