Q. The single most important thing in a chess position is the safety of the <KING POSITION>. In this position, notice how the White b1-king has His <MOBILITY RESTRICTED> to the b1- and c2-squares. Hence the White b1-king is <TRAPPED IN A CORRIDOR>, the b1-h7 diagonal. His Majesty has only <ONE DEGREE OF MOBILITY (ODOM)>.

Wouldn't Black like to land a big <CHECK> on the e4-sq; it could be <MATE>. The White e1-rook is the only <DEFENDER> preventing this idea. What to do.

Hint: As FM Neimann writes in his tactic book, <CRUCIAL DEFENDER. OVERLOADED DEFENDER>.

Notice how the aggresively placed Black b3-knight helps to <TRAP> the White b1-king by <DENYING> the a1- and c1-flight squares. You <TRAP PIECES BY TAKING AWAY THEIR FLIGHT SQUARES>.
