Centralizing the King in the Endgame

This was one of my best rapid play games that I played in Atherton in 2015. At that time I played the Closed Sicilian with White and got a nice advantage out of the opening.

My Dad liked the breakthrough on the queenside with 19.b4 which led to the win of a couple of pawns. He also liked the fact I centralized my king in the endgame while giving Black no counter play.
