24. Nxd7!
In addition to the discovered attack on the rook this also opens up the 'd' file with decisive effect.
24. ... Bxd7 25. Bxh8 +- Bxf4 26. e5! g5 27. b5! Ke8
( 27. ... Rxb5 28. Qf8# )
28. e6! fxe6 29. Rxd7!
# This will be followed by Bxc6 so Black resigned. It is impressive how Morozevich tore apart Black's position with the last few energetic moves.
