  fredthebear: In the final position, White is ahead in the pawn count 7-6. Black can temporarily even the pawn count with 15...exd6. This is met by 16.Bxd6! If 16...RxBd6 17.c5 forks the Black queen and rook. Obviously Black wants to avoid the pawn fork, so he will remain one pawn behind in a less active position.

Given this result, 14...Rd8 is a mistake. Normally, aiming a rook through a center pawn at the opposing queen is a good positional strategy, but it does not work here tactically. It's easy to overlook the ramifications because the rook is seemingly well placed (although knights and bishops are usually developed before rooks). Captures and recaptures dictate.
