Blunder (24)

In the diagram below you see a position from Arribas Lopez - Ipatov (Barcelona 2011) with Black to move.

Instead of 20.- Bc6 Black played 20.- Rc8?? A not much understandable move on this level. White now simply saced the rook with 21.axb5 Rc1+ 22.Ke2 Rxh1 23.bxa6 and now Black cannot play 23.- bxa6 because of the mate on the back rank.
23.- Qe7 24.Qxb7 Qe8 25.a7 Ra1 26.Qb8 Kf8 27.Nc6 Ra2+ 28.Kd1 f5 29.b4 1-0
