Total domination in Closed Sicilian Defense with white

Total domination in Closed Sicilian Defense with white

I want to share one of my games in Closed Sicilian for white. It's the variation where black allows white to take the knight on c6 and ruin black's pawn structure. In my humble opinion, this is already close to losing strategically for black on move 4(!). I have won numerous games in this variation and it's a pleasure to play it with white.

 

The final position is really picturesque. Notice how none of black's pieces can move anywhere. White is threatening Nf6+ or can impose a strong knight on d6. The only logical move would be 22...g5 for black, but it also fails in all variations.
