23.Qg6+ Rf7. That doesn't matter. We can still pick up the rook by

26.Bxc7+! Now we are getting somewhere!
27. Qe7+ Kc8
28. Qxf8+. Finally!!

Man, they were gobbling everything in sight like the cookie monster! Looks like Black played ...Be6 (21...Bxe6) too late. Had ...Be6 happened sooner, the e5-pawn advance would have been blocked and the file does not open --- big difference to an uncastled king.
