Whether or not |18.o21 will work in this common pattern depends on Black's ability to connect L20 to something useful thru the gap that White leaves after playing L19. In this case, it's White's advantage: |19.l19 20.l20 21.p21 22.k18 23.k17. White was winning.

What Black should have done instead is |18.n22, and he's just high enough from the bottom to make it work: |18.n22 19.l19 20.o20 21.m21 22.l21 23.k21 24.k23.

So, |18.o21 handed White victory, which White promptly handed back with |19.p21.
