19...Rb8 20. Bxb4 Rxb4 21. Qxb4 Bxb4 22. Rxc7
Jul-03-09  Steven87: It's the bishop that feels the brunt of this. Any attempt to protect it will be met with Rxc5, and the Queen will be the only piece which can retake, after which Bxb4 will follow and the Queen is won at the price of a rook, as seen below:

19. ... Rc1 20. Rxc5 Qxc5?? 21. Bxb4 Rc8 22. Qa3 Kd8 23. Bxc5

The best alternative is a counterattack on the Queen, which is parried by accepting and winning the bishop:

19. ... Bc6 20. Rxc5 Bxa4 Rxc7
19. ... Bb3 20. Rxc5 Bxa4 Rxc7
