Stephen Brady, Bunratty, 1998

From S.Brady-G.O'Connell, 2005 Irish Championships. In this game Stephen Brady (right) sacrificed two pawns in the opening to saddle Black with a cramped position. Gerry's last move (20...Qb7) was a mistake and simply taking the exchange with 21.Bxf8 would be good enough for White. However, Stephen spotted a quicker and prettier way to win. Can you? Solution.
