One of those Spanish Openings where nothing gets exchanged for a long time. White manoeuvres in a way that has been known for 100 years.

19.Nf5. This knight cannot be taken owing to the obvious Qg5+ & #. But White must remember that THAT threat will not <always> be there.

A very complicated position. Could Black have played 26...gxf5 now? He played, in fact, 26...Qb6. I bet both players were short of time by now.
Black's hopes may have risen when he played 29...Bb6+!

But the killer dénoument is 30.Rd4!
There is a clever line after 26.Bf8.

Let's have a look at 26...gxf5.

The e-pawn is pinned, so 27.gxf5. 27...Ng7Δ...Nxf5. Now possibly 28.Rg1.
