Jul-30-14  xombie: Here is the 'wow' moment on move 22. Bd4.

22.. Bxd4 leads to loss of a pawn (and game) since white has a majority on the kingside, which might in itself win in the endgame.

After this, it is a fairly simple case of creating the majority and pushing it. It seems that black's rook is out of place too.
