24.Rfd1 would have been better.

  sachistu: The score is not quite correct here. White played 17.Rac1 according to the tournament book (p.52-53). Apparently, the Tb version (17.Rac1) is not a typo as in the note to move 19...g5(!) Keres says ..."poor is 19...Bxc3 20.Rxc3 fxe4 21.Qd4" so it seems clear the tournament book is correct. I'll submit a correction slip.
