May-19-04  ConLaMismaMano: 17.d6...i love moves like this one.
May-20-04  chessdr: I take it the threat is 24. Nf5+.

If 24. ... Bxf5, 25. Bxf5 and black will lose material on c8.

If 24. ... Kh8, 25. Qh6 Rg8, 26. Ne7 Re8, 27. Nxg6+ (faster than 27. Nxc8 Ra1xc8) fxg6 28. Bxg6 and black can't solve all of his problems.
