  Mating Net: Black pays too heavy a price for capturing the e4 pawn. His King is misplaced, Rooks are disconnected, and White gets some tempo moves to boot. Not a pawn I would capture.

  fredthebear: The last move 25.c4 is all but immune from capture. If 25...Qxc4 it's mate in two with 26.Qd7+ Kb8 27.Qxb7#. If 25...Bxc4 26.Rab1 threatens the Black queen who must defend the b7- and d7-squares.

If the Black queen flees from capture by the c4 pawn, it's drops the Black bishop. Many might try 25...Qa4 (or Qb4, Qb2, etc.), but she's overworked there. 26.RxBa2 and the rook is immune because the Black queen is tied to the defense of the d7-square.

So, the last gasp 25...Qe5 threatening mate on the e1-square simply loses to mate on the long diagonal after 26.Qd7+ Kb8 27.Qxb7#.

White has too many threats for Black to deal with here.
