Apr-08-19  Great Bear: Nice attacking game by Black. White will soon get mated.

Feb-29-20  jith1207: In this position, Black seems to be extremely under duress from White's forces barging in its Bishop and Knight and also a possible pawn promotion. Black's pieces seems to be immobile, not having enough space to move trying avoid falling into any tactical ideas.

In this situation, as shown below, Black finds perfect time from move 27 to make two seemingly inconsequential moves here, e6 --> e4.

That helps
1. Mobilize its own Rooks, quickly attack the opponent King than White's long winding positional constriction.

2. Even makes for a trap for enemy Queen to move from g3-b8 when attacked by Rook few moves later.

Those two silent moves make for the tables to be turned upside down in such a quick transformation.

Feb-29-20  jith1207: Correct moves were 28 and 29.

3. It also helps to create the final mating net that would make the opponent resign.

It's very instructive how this position transforms from a submissive and self-restricting position:

To a totally aggressive and oppressive position, with all other right pieces and an attack in hand:
