Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-15  ScottElliott: 18 Rxc5 was a useful exchange sacrifice for keeping the initiative and the bishop pair. After 18...dxc5 19 Bxc5 the Black Nb4 and e7 were forked allowing White to play Bxe7 giving White a fully passed d5-d6 pawn which blocked Black's KB out of the game allowing White to position his pieces for pushing the d-pawn home.
