  Gilmoy: Trapped like a d.uffer! Rewind a bit: <18..Qh4+> is a slippery slope, <19..Bh6> leaves her with <no escape>. Winning a tempo (two if you count White having to move the QR by hand) is diluted because Black must return the tempi to withdraw his Q.

After <22.Rf7 23.Rhf1> Bf8 <KID dance for a flight square> 24.Nh4 Qh6 25.Qf2:

Black's pieces struggle to find squares, and his pawn chain is all wrong for a Bg7. White's K is happy at c2, after Rubinstein's Other Game. Black must have judged this to be <less> promising than the Q raid.

The video casts blame on Black's meek(?) <12..f6>, failing to assess the surely-he-wouldn't case. <13.Bxc5! 14.Bxh5!> he <did>, he <did> give up the BB-pair for a lowly N-on-rim, and <15.g4!> with a pawnlock neutering Black's BB. Black correctly judged that he had to do something fast, but it was already beyond saving.
