  fredthebear: 15...f6 was vital. Otherwise, White sacrifices 16.Bxg7 and the White battery on the h-file is decisive.

Both colors give and take throughout, but White's passer has better support with the more active king. From the final position, Black's light-squared bishop will have to give itself up to prevent pawn promotion, leaving the White knight to roam with advantage in the endgame.
