Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-29-03  bishop: A "quiet" final move shows the hopelessness of Black's position.
Aug-08-04  patzer2: In this unusal trapped piece combination, which starts with 22.f4!, notice that White has a waiting move after whatever Black plays at move 24...? to then play 25. Kf2! After this subtle move, white closes the trap and wins a piece with decisive advantage.
