  Breunor: Kungfu fighter, it looks like the losing move should be 21 Qc3, which Stockfish evaluates at -2.02, however black doesn't play through with the best moves. 21 Re3 evaluates at -.64.

But then white misses 23 Rxe6! The final fatal blunder is 25 g3 which evaluates to -4.9. 25 f3 is -1.8.

  OrangeTulip: Apart from a bad move, is it also not a case of the attacker-defender ratio? White has hardly any defending pieces near his king.
