White start to blow up the center. 
21.gxf6 gxf6 22.Rag1 e5 23.fxe5 fxe5 24.Rg5

24…exd4! 25.Rxa5?
Perhaps, White shouldn't have accepted a piece sacrifice, however, its position is worse in any case. 
Good is 25…Qg4+ 26.Bf3 d3+ 27.Kf2 Rdf8 28.Qd1 Rxh4! 29.Rxh4 Qxh4+ 30.Kg2 Rh8!, where the knight joins the attack from c4. 
Lesser of two evils — 26.cxd4 Rxe4, where White attacks and dominates on the white squares in a materially equal position. 
White wins easily.
27.Bc1 Qd3+ 28.Ke1 e2 29.Bf4+ Ка8 30.Kf2 Rf8 31.Qb4 Nc4 32.Qa4 Nxa5 33.Bf3 b5 0-1
