  fredthebear: In the final position, White is down a piece and the en prise queen needs to move to safety. She can pile on the pinned knight with 22.Qd2 (or 22.Qb2) while still protecting the Rd1 and preventing Black from additional Bd3 protection. Then Black would reply 22...Qe5+ and White finds his king on the run. The Black pieces are sufficiently protected yet poised to move and White appears to have no path to getting even in the piece count.
