18. Nxb6 from white would have at least gotten rid of that bishop.

D Edelman vs J Curdo, 1983

Feb-26-16  happyjuggler0: <perfidious> I can't help but wonder if Curdo has won that exact game even more than twice. Everything in the game seems pretty logical, at least on the surface, so I am not surprised that Curdo got more than one player to fall into that line from start to finish.
Feb-28-16  RookFile: That's amazing to see that Curdo played this more than once!
