Dec-12-09  jontsef: I don't get this, what happens after Rh6?
It looks like Bxd7+ is forced otherwise Black plays Re6. After Bxd7+ Kxd7 Rad1+ Ke8. Black seems to be OK, how can white make progress? also Black can regroup with Ra8 and Rh6-b6-b7, trapping the knight or forcing White to play Rd8 and give up the pawn.

Am I missing something really obvious?

Dec-12-09  Aspirador: <jontsef> It seems like Black really missed 25...Rh6. Computers confirm that Black can play on (even though he is a bit worse in the line you gave above).
Mar-10-10  jontsef: I found out what was wrong. White actually played 21.0-0-0 and 23.Rhe1 when it is indeed hopeless for Black in the final position because White has both his rooks on the d and e files.

How do we fix the game notation?
