It's depressing for a patzer like me to see these kind of moves. Will I ever be able to understand chess?

<15.a3 <<<15.dxe5? Qxd1+!! 16.Nxd1 Bd3 wins the exchange>>>>

Note how this combination is possible only because of the great <LACK OF MOBILITY> of the boxed-in White b1-queen.

Oct-05-10  Quentinc: Why not 24.Qd2?
Oct-26-10  jerseybob: 24.Qd1 is a blunder, but after the better Qd2, 24..Na4 should win.

  whiteshark: Wicked! What wild walkthrough. Wonder where White went wrong? Will watch world weather while waiting...
Dec-06-10  jrlepage: 24. Qd2 Na4 25.Kg2 seems to hold. And sacrificing on b2 (N or B) fails to mate threats or perp.
Dec-08-10  jerseybob: 25..Bf6 might be a way to keep the game going. But after 26.e4,Be6 27.Bd5,c5 28.Bxe6,fxe6 29.Qf4 who's winning?
May-28-11  Whitehat1963: An underappreciated game, I think.
Apr-24-12  notyetagm: Game Collection: DEFENDERS! DEFENDERS! DEFENDERS! THAT IS A DEFEN
Sep-29-15  RKnight: Another defense for black is 22...h4 23 Ra1+ Kh2 24 b3 Qe4 = (more or less)
May-06-17  Finnishplayer: I agree with Whitehat1963. This game is a gem.
