Looks like 22...Bxc3 loses to 23. Qxc3 Rf7 24. f3! (defending Nxe4) fxe4 25. Rxh5!.

22...Bg7 still gives white a strong initiative after 23. Rxh5 gxh5 24. Bxg7 Kxg7 25. e5 Ne4 and white has a host of choices. From the quiet, yet brilliant 26. Kf1!! to the more direct 26. Nb5. It's no doubt who's better in those situations.

22...Bxf4 might be a better chance and after 23. Rxh5 fxe4 24. Rh4 Bxh6 25. Rxh6 Nf5 26. Rh3 Nd4 27. Nb5 ignoring c2 threats leads to a favorable position to white. Very interesting Rg5 move by Yulia.

22...Bxe2 is probably best.
