  fredthebear: Interesting strategy and tactics by White. First, he reinforces 15.e4 and after the white e-pawn is exchanged off, Black is saddled w/a backward e-pawn that becomes pinned.

White's dark-squared bishop leaves the b-pawn undefended in order to rob the pinned e-pawn by 22.BxNd6! Black makes things worse by recapturing w/the pinned e-pawn 22...exBd6? and the Black rook is lost after 23.RxRe8. White sacrifices this rook 27.RxBc8 RxRc8 to follow up with 28.Qd7+ forking Black's remaining rook.

Black loses on time after 33.Qd8 which kept the Black king hemmed in and threatened a royal pin w/34.Re7. If 33...Be6 to prevent such, then 34.Qxa5 threatens the loose knight.
