  Mateo: The turning point was 21... Ra5?. Better 21... Qa8! =.

23... d4 (instead of 23... Ra2) 24. Nd6 (threatening 25. Nf7) Qf6 25. Rd7 Ra3 26. Rbb7 Rd3 27. Rf7 Rf7 28. Rf7 .

Yes, 25 ♘xf7! takes advantage of the tactical point that the Black f8-rook must <BREAK THE ALIGNMENT> between the Black d8-queen and g8-king, else ♖b7-b8 <PINS> and wins the Black queen. Since the Black f8-rook must remain on the back rank to perform this defensive task, it cannot also <DEFEND> the Black f7-pawn.

<BREAKING AN ALIGNMENT IS A FULL-TIME JOB>. The Black f8-rook cannot <BREAK THE ALIGNMENT> between the Black d8-queen and g8-king -and- <DEFEND> the Black f7-pawn (25 ♘xf7!).
