Burn's position is bad, but he manages to make it a whole lot worse with his next move. Loose Pieces Drop Off, as <notyetagm> likes to say.

  kingscrusher: 15.Nf5+ was a good try for White for advantage it seems

Analysis by Stockfish 15 - 3 threads max:

1. ± (1.48): 15...Bxf5 16.exf5 b4 17.Ne2 Ndb7 18.f4 Nd7 19.Rfe1 Rhe8 20.fxe5 Nxe5 21.Nd4 Nd8 22.h3 a5 23.g4 a4 24.b3 axb3 25.axb3 Kf8 26.Bf2 Nef7 27.Kg2 Rxe1 White is clearly better

(Gavriel, 19.03.2023)

Maybe White was trying to improve on Nf5+ with b4 first hoping for Nc5-d7 or Nc5-e6 but not banking on Nb7. And then the Nf5+ resource can't be played because b4 is hanging.

  perfidious: This game is an example of reverse Laskerian play in how Burn went from a favourable position to a clearly inferior one over the space of a dozen moves, as pointed up by the posts of <kingscrusher> and <keypusher>.

The game W Addison vs Fischer, 1963 comes to mind.
