  fredthebear: This middlegame has four open files. The choice of where to place the rooks is crucial but not so clear. 23.Rhf1! aiming through the minor pieces at the opposing king is the table setter. If 23...Rf6? to protect the bishop, 24.Nh5 hits the rook on its new guard station. So Black chose the natural move to connect his rooks with 23...Rcd8 but he should have protected his loose bishop instead. 24.Rde1 threatens the Black knight so it retreats to create a half-pin on the f-file, allowing 25.Ne6+ fork.

Had Black chosen to continue in the final position shown, the piece exchanges on e5 would generate an endgame down the exchange. It's playable if Black enjoys endgame challenges.
