Sneaky, but also the only way to save the exchange. 19...Bxf1 would meet 20.Ne7+ Kh8 21.Qxh7+! winning. A well-known theme whose name I can't remember right now.

  Ziryab: The position after 28.axb3 appears in Ludek Pachman, Modern Chess Strategy (25) as an example of the superiority of the bishop.

Playing this with Stockfish, I'm not convinced that Black's advantage is clearly winning.
