The Immortal Everyone should know what I am talking about.

Black's final (insuccessful) attempt was 20... Na6, attempting to block the mate on c7. He did, however quickly lose after Nxg7, Qf6, and Be7.

What I cannot find, however, is how White breaks black after 20... Ba6. I have been looking at Nxg7+ followed by Qxf7 for white, but am stifled by Kc8 (!). Please share your thoughts and analyses.

524 I have added the position (before Na6) if a board would help with analyses, or if you cannot remember the position.
