  zydeco: 19....b4 is a bit over-the-top. 21....g6 is necessary because of 22.Rf5 threatening Rxe5. Black can't recapture the a-pawn with 23....Rxa2 because of 24.Qb3. The white queenside pawns decide the game after that sequence. In hindsight, maybe black should have shaken it up with ....Qxc2, say on move 21, although 22.Bd3 looks scary.
