  fredthebear: The center pawn fork trick and White's pawn levers throw Black into disarray. Black lost the right to castle and his kingside has sprung a leak that grows worse.

In the final position, Black is up a minor piece, but White has the safer king, leads in development and has the initiative. Black's cramped queenside needs more time to develop while White's queenside is ready to join the fight.

Both Black knights are in trouble. One knight is pinned to the open f-file and the other knight on the rim is undefended. If 17...Nf5 18.Qxg6 and more Black units will be captured. If 17...g5, White will sacrifice his dark squared bishop for two pawns and round up a knight. Then White can centralize his queen's rook. White also has Nd5 available to pile on the pinned Nf6.

Given the factors of time, space, safety, mobility, and immediate threats, it is practical to resign here. It's only going to get worse for Black.
